Cree Nation Government

Cree Nation Government

The Grand Council of the Crees (Eeyou Istchee) is the political body that represents the approximately 18,000 Cree people of the territory called Eeyou Istchee  in the James Bay and Nunavik regions of Northern Quebec. The Grand Council has twenty members: a Grand Chief and Deputy-Grand Chief elected at large by the Cree people, the Chiefs elected by each of the ten communities, and one other representative from each community.

Web Design & Communications

For over 15 years, we have been building websites for various departments within the Cree Nation Government. From environmental initiatives to the Cree Nation Youth Council and beyond, we have built numerous websites that showcase the diverse range of departments and their important work. Through our longstanding partnership, we have consistently provided reliable and innovative web solutions that enhance the online presence of the various departments and promote transparency, accessibility, and community engagement.


Eeyou Conservation

The Cree Regional Conservation Strategy is a Cree Nation initiative, developed by the Eeyou Protected Areas Committee. This Committee is comprised of representatives from all 10 Cree communities, along with members from the Cree Trappers Association (CTA), Cree Nation Youth Council (CNYC) and the Cree Nation Government (Environment and Remedial Works Department and the Culture and Language Department).

Cree Nation Youth Council

The driving force behind the creation of the CNYC is the Eeyou Youth of the Cree Nation of Eeyou Istchee, imbued with the desire to safeguard their rights and interest, as well as strengthen collective and economic life in accordance with the traditions and principles of the Cree Nation.

Eeyou Planning Commission

The EPC was established by the Cree Nation Government to assist with land and resource planning responsibilities in Eeyou Itschee.

Eeyou Marine Region

The Eeyou Marine Region Land Claims Agreement (the “Offshore Agreement”) is the result of 10 years of negotiations on the rights and obligations of the Crees and Canada in the offshore area of Eeyou Istchee. This area is known as the Eeyou Marine Region (EMR), or in other words, the area of the offshore that the Crees have traditionally occupied and used.

Eeyou Marine Region Impact Review Board

The Eeyou Marine Region Impact Review Board is an Institution of Public Government established under the Eeyou Marine Region Land Claims Agreement (EMRLCA). The Agreement was signed by the Governments of Canada and Nunavut, and by the Grand Council of the Crees on behalf of the Crees of Eeyou Istchee.

Video Productions

Our collaboration with the Cree Nation Government has been centered on producing a diverse range of videos with the shared goal of preserving heritage, advancing research, and promoting cultural understanding. Working closely with various departments, we have undertaken projects spanning public service announcements, engaging short documentaries, and research-focused videos. With a particular emphasis on archeology and cultural exploration, our team has dedicated extensive efforts to capture the essence of the Cree Nation's rich heritage.
