Covid-19 has changed the atmosphere of what events are going on within Gambler First Nation as a Community.
Indigenous Services Canada will not be handing out Treaty money this year on First Nations.
Gambler Family Reunion has been cancelled.
Small local community events will continue while practicing social distancing.
During the Community Fun Day Gambler First Nation will be taking temperatures, names and phone numbers of those who participate to ensure safety. Wearing masks will be encouraged as well as social distancing.
The threat of Covid-19 looms and in the upcoming months Gambler will be implementing security measures to keep the community safe.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Our Detachments have been receiving complaints today regarding telephone fraudsters trying to obtain SIN #'s and banking information...
Using computer generated calling, they are able to make their phone number appear local / legitimate on call-display. The callers say there are warrants out for your arrest, a family member is in jail etc..
Please share this in our communities to prevent others from falling victim to these calls and please report any to your local Detachment.

We received a cheque from West Region Tribal Council for $5,000 this afternoon. They indicated they received $40,000 from the Southern Chiefs Organization towards the Urban and Off Reserve membership and were providing $5,000 to each of WRTC First Nations towards providing support and services to off-reserve membership. We have put up a poll for input on how to distribute the funds.
