The Community Relations office is a small but extremely busy office (two full time staff) performing and involved in many activities that are essential to the Gingolx Village Government. We are responsible for all activities related to members for the registration process as a Nisga’a citizen. This registration process enables them to be eligible for education, health and Individual permits as a Nisga’a citizen. We are responsible for activities related to members that are holders of Nisga’a Village Entitlements, Nisga’a Nation Entitlements and Fee Simple. We assist members in the paperwork process which gives opportunities of transfers or mortgage requests.
Special Projects is a large part of the department. We provide program development to the GVG Department’s for any projects in their work plan. Our purpose is to provide hands on management of the project or assist in developing proposals and budgets for their ideas. The Community Relations office is also responsible for media and marketing of GVG. The development of Newsletters for the Community and Staff and marketing materials that promotes GVG is new areas of tasks for this department.
