Mikisew GIR was established in January 2001 as a department of the Mikisew Cree First Nation. Directed by Chief and Council, we act as liaison between resource developers, operators, governments and the community. Mikisew GIR is the primary vehicle to bring the Mikisew Nation to the table as an equal participant in resource development, and ensures the Nation is meaningfully consulted.
