The Allotment Commission is composed of five Commissioners, appointed by Council, who are WFN Members. One Commissioner is an Elder, and one is a member of Council.
The Commission is tasked with evaluating and making decisions about applications for housing Allotments; administering the allotment of Community Lands; establishing policies and procedures for the operation of the Commission; and establishing programs of public information and education relating to the purpose of the Commission.
Councillor Christopher Derickson was first elected in the 2012 by-election to represent the community for the remainder of the 2010 to 2013 term, and was re-elected by the community in 2013 and again in 2016. Chris has an EMBA from Simon Fraser University, which he completed in 2017.
Chris is the son of Raymond and Carol Derickson, and the grandson of the late Richard and Caroline Derickson, and Art and Esther Potts of the Samson Cree Nation. He is married to Jordan Derickson and has a 20 year old son, Justin.
Christopher’s mandate is that, in all that Westbank First Nation does, and will do, it is the people that matter the most and he works to ensure that Members are informed and included.
