Children’s Trust

The Bigstone Cree Nation’s Children’s Trust is unique in that this trust was established to hold the per capita distribution funds for those that were under the age of eighteen at the time of the settlement in 2010.

Upon reaching the age of majority, Bigstone Cree Nation members who were under the age of eighteen in 2010 are automatically eligible to receive per capita funds distribution plus any accumulated interest.

The monies held in this trust cannot be used for anything other than to distribute the per capita funds to those individuals who have reached the age of majority.

Only children born before January 2010 are eligible. Once the last child born before that date turns 18, the account will be depleted.

If a child passes-away before reaching the age of 18, the parents are urged to contact BCN Membership at 780 891-3836.
