This Department was made fully operational in February of 2008 to meet the need for a Land Registrar to help the community members in their request for Lots (Piece of land) for private housing, commercial, and industrial buildings. This became a necessity as the demand for Lots became more frequent than previous years.
Roles and Functions
The role of the Land Registrar is to assist the community member/local entrepreneurs/Cree Entities in helping with the application processes, ideal locations for the requested usage of Lot, and making sure Zoning and By-Laws are respected. The L.R also assists for applications to be properly filled out for different usage of Lots.
This department in junction with the Capital Projects department and other various departments, also, helps in the development of the community with different projects that departments have related to land management. The department drafted Zoning/bylaws policies that still need to be finalized and to be passed at next General Assembly in April/2011. More information on this project will be available once it's been approved by the community members of Waswanipi.
The Department delegated members from various Departments to create a new committee called Land Management Committee. They oversee that the policies from this project are followed and are respected. These members work in different departments and play a role in the development of our community.
