A First Nations reserve

A First Nations reserve is not part of any municipality. The federal government takes responsibility for First Nations reserves. Because of this there is no city water, garbage pick up, sewer etc. It is the responsibility of the First Nation to research, build and maintain these services and or enter into a local agreement with the neighboring municipality.

Unless there is a local agreement in place, people living on reserve are not given voting rights in municipal elections, nor have free access to a library card and Parks and Recreation low income passes.
