From enticing tax incentives to streamlined application processes our dedicated chief & council council are here to help investors succeed without the barriers to growth

Governance In Frog Lake

Frog Lake is committed to our mission of:

We Are Determined To Do Good Things And Committed To Achieve Results For The Frog Lake First Nation.

Our residents are engaged in building and maintaining a community they are proud to live and work in. Collaboration among chief and council, administration staff, municipalities and local and federal government work to ensure Frog Lake is an engaging, dynamic community.

Chief and council can pass and enact resolutions, policies and bylaws which in turn influences our community’s long-term health and well-being. It is important to understand the differences between resolutions, policies and bylaws, as all three can be utilized to create healthy public policy.

A councillor’s job is to work with other council members to set the overall direction of Frog Lake through their role as a policy maker. The policies that council sets are the guidelines for administration to follow as it does the job of running a town. A councillor will spend a lot of time while on council creating new policies and programs or reviewing the current ones to make sure they are working as they should.
