The First Nations Leadership Council and its delegated subcommittee the BC First Nations Gaming Commission are issuing a call to citizens and members of BC First Nations for expressions of interest in the role of an Indigenous Director to sit on the BC Lottery Corporation (“BCLC”) board of directors (the “Board”).
The representative Board position was established pursuant to the Long Term BC First Nations Gaming Revenue Sharing and Financial Agreement, which came into effect on September 16, 2020 (the “Revenue Sharing Agreement”). Pursuant to the agreement, each year for twenty-five years 7% of the net income of BCLC is paid to the BC First Nations Gaming Revenue Sharing Limited Partnership for distribution to all BC First Nations. The director will be seated at the next possible opportunity, anticipated in spring 2022, for a term of one year, with eligibility for re-appointment totaling six years of service. Orientation and onboarding will be provided by the First Nations Leadership Council and by BCLC.
