The Liard First Nation could see its federal funding cut after ignoring a second deadline to post its financial information online.
Under the First Nations Financial Transparency Act, Yukon’s unsigned First Nations were given until July 29 to post their financial statements online.
Those statements include the salaries and expenses of its chiefs and councillors. First Nations were later given a 120-day extension.
As of this morning, 532 of 582 First Nations across the country had provided their documents.
The Liard First Nation is the Yukon’s one remaining First Nation that hasn’t yet provided this information.
Penalties include withholding funds, publishing the names of all non-compliant First Nations on the AANDC website and potential court orders.
The First Nation was placed under third party management at the end of August.
In his last public statement, Chief Daniel Morris said there were no plans to co-operate with Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada.
No one from the First Nation responded to a request for comment by press time.
