Administration and Finance

Xwísten administration and finance team are responsible for the day-to-day operations of our band, for long-range planning, and every thing in between!

In addition to overseeing the overall operations of the band, this group runs the Band’s economic development projects and businesses and is the main point of contact when people call or come into the office.

The finance department is run by a certified accountant and is responsible for managing the band’s finances and reporting to funders. In order to keep things running efficiently, there are several points that members should be aware of:

  • Cheques are printed every Friday by 3:00 pm. Please do not call before 3:00 p.m.
  • Please hand in all requests to funding to the appropriate departments as soon as you know about the request. All departments require that requests for funding must be in at least one week prior to the date the funding is required. And all departments must have their cheque requests into the finance department by Fridays at 9:00 a.m.
  • So for example, if you have a medical appointment next Monday the 17th, you should have your letter into the health department by Monday the 10th at 9:00 a.m. at the latest.
