About Human Resources Department

Shannon Pedlar

Director of Human Resources
The shíshálh First Nation created the position of Director of Human Resources in the summer of 2007. Before that, human resources (HR) issues were managed directly by the CAO and department heads. This meant that they were taking valuable time away from their areas of expertise to deal with HR matters. The creation of the human resources position allows the other department heads to focus on their programs, and helps to ensure a consistent approach to human resources issues across the organization. It also provides a single point of responsibility for planning, for development of new policies, and for human resources projects.

Although Human Resources focuses mainly on supporting the CAO, department heads, and Chief and Council, support and advice is provided to anyone who works for the Band, as well as to people who don´t work for the Band but who want to. HR provides support on policies, human resources legal issues, human resources processes, payroll administration, payroll budgeting, strategic planning, dealing with staff issues and difficult situations, and recruiting and staffing.

Employment at the shíshálh First Nation is generally covered by the Canada Labour Code, as well as our own policies, WorksafeBC (WCB) regulations, and the rules of our benefits plans. Employment with the Band´s businesses is covered by the B.C Employment Standards Act rather than the Canada Labour Code.

Employment and Training – Work Gear Retention - Education Department

Date Posted: 2016-08-04

Please note that financial assistance for Work Gear Retention is to support Band members who have an opportunity to secure employment but require work gear on a one time basis. The employer must sign your work gear retention forms to confirm that they will be hiring you once you get the proper work gear. We have been receiving a number of requests from band members who have been employed for a number of years with the same employer and are submitting request for work gear.

Please note this is for band members who have not been working therefor can not afford to purchase their own work gear. Band members who have been working are expected to purchase their own work gear as outlined from their employer.
