Community Engagement toward a new funeral policy

Tla’amin Nation is developing a funeral policy to describe the types of services and supports available to Tla’amin families when a loved one passes. The policy will also outline the administration’s policy on office closures and staff leave for services.  The development of this policy was directed by EC in late 2023.

To advance the work on a new funeral policy Tla’amin conducted community engagement at the General Assembly through two focus groups and surveys. In total the Nation received 146 comments from 47 citizens. Through the process the Nation heard from several key Citizens and staff who work most directly in planning and carrying out funerals.
