Community

Nooaitch Council priorities are building their Council and staff capacity, moving ahead with strategic planning, community, land use planning and economic development. The Council has identified a need for strategic planning. Strategic planning is an organization’s process of defining its strategy and making decisions on allocating its resources (both financial and human resources) to pursue their strategies.

In 2010/2011 Nooaitch was successful in receiving the INAC Professional and Institutional Development Funding to develop the Council Five Year Plan. The Plan pulled together information from the workshop and the Plan will become an integral part of the Council Governance Manual and will be reviewed annually. The Plan will guide the Council and Management with their Governance and Administration to accomplish Goals and Objectives. The Plan will be revisited annually to review completed task and to be updated.

 

 

Angela Fountain

Economic Development Officer & CEO for NDC  


I am a Nooaitch band member and have lived on Nooaitch Reserve #10 for over 20 years with my husband James Fountain and my two daughters, Natasha and Jocelyn. I have four beautiful grandchildren, Wade, Jamie, Jorden, and Rayna.  
 
I have had the Opportunities to Work with Nooaitch Indian Band in previous years as a contractor and in the capacity to organize, facilitate, record, report, collecting, and engage during Community events e.g. Community Comprehensive Plan and By-law development.
 
I have previously been employed with the Nicola Tribal Association in their Research, GIS, Administration, Health, Finance, and Forestry Departments through different funding sources.  In addition I have taught at Kelly Lake Cree Nation helping to create and start their Land Use Research Project. 
 
It is a pleasure to work with the dedicated staff, which have been working diligently to provide policies so that equality is met with each registered band member of the Nooaitch Indian Band, Utilizing the Community Comprehensive Plan as a guide in the priority of the Nooaitch Band Membership becoming a balanced governance structure and helping the members, where possible, and identifying the gaps within the structure of the Nooaitch organization.
 
I am looking forward to working with the Nooaitch Chief, Council and Community as an Economic Development Officer.


The Comprehensive Community Planning
process is the gateway for Nooaitch Band to plan our future together and will serve the needs of the membership for the next 15 to 20 years. The community-based planning brings community members together to discuss how they want their community to be for their future seven generations. It is important for the success of the CPP that community members engage in the consultation meetings for their input, in the strengths and issues, to review the vision, develop an action plan, implement, and monitor projects. The plans and documents completed will be reviewed by Chief, Council, along with the Community to set their goals and show gaps where needed in the community.

The CCP will enhance the 5 year Strategic plan that Chief and Council have been diligently working on in the past 2 years with Deb and Nancy from KDC. The CCP Outline will be a guide for the planning process. Encouraging Elders, Youth, to take ownership of their ideas and input, and Band members to attend and provide their input.


The Plan will guide the Council and Management with their Governance and Administration to accomplish Goals and Objectives. The Plan will be revisited annually to review completed task and to be updated.
