First Nations chiefs from across Canada voted Thursday in favour of reviewing the Assembly of First Nations’ financial policies, and if deemed necessary, conducting a financial audit. The vote, which took place on the final day of the AFN’s annual general assembly, solidified support for National Chief RoseAnne Archibald, who was suspended by the AFN’s executive committee last month.
The National Chief has repeatedly called for a forensic audit, alleging financial improprieties within the organization.
Several leaders expressed frustration over the delayed schedule at the three-day gathering, which brought together hundreds of First Nations leaders, elders, and youth from across Canada to set the AFN’s priorities for the coming year, but was largely spent discussing two emergency draft resolutions related to the National Chief’s suspension.
