Each year, Nipissing First Nation distributes Christmas shares to registered members from the Band Revenue account.
On or about the 2nd week of December each year, Christmas Distribution dates are held in Garden Village and Duchesnay. Funds can also be received by completing the Christmas Distribution Form by the specified deadline (in early November) to request these funds by cheque or direct deposit. Funds can also be picked up from the Finance Department until March 31st each year.
Shares do not accumulate and must be picked up or requested separately each year. Members who donate their share to a community cause will be provided with a Charitable Tax Receipt upon request.
In 2018, Christmas shares were $180 for all members up to age 64, and $250 for members aged 65 years and older.
For more information, please refer to the Christmas Distribution Policy.
Christmas Distribution forms for 2019 will be posted to this page when they are issued in September.
