The Leadership Council (LC), formally known as the Political Confederacy (PC), is the political coordination and steering committee for First Nations in Ontario. Mandated by the Chiefs-in-Assembly, the LC works with the Ontario Regional Chief to set, coordinate, and implement First Nations leaders’ priorities.

COO Leadership Council and Premier of Ontario, Doug Ford.

The LC and Regional Chief are also mandated to address unforeseen and emergency issues between Assemblies. The Leadership Council is comprised of the political executives of the four Political Territorial Organizations (PTOs): Anishinabek Nation, Association of Iroquois and Allied Indians, Nishnawbe Aski Nation, Grand Council Treaty #3, as well as the Independent First Nations, Six Nations of the Grand River, and the Mohawks of Akwesasne. To complete their important work, the Council uses a portfolio system to delegate broad responsibilities in sector areas such as health, education, environment and social services. Members of the Leadership Council take responsibility for a select portfolio, ensuring that each sector has a dedicated champion, an advocate and a strong leader.

The Leadership Council relies on the work of the COO Secretariat and works closely with Sector Directors to ensure that the Council has the most up-to-date analysis and information. This relationship between the Leadership Council and Sector Directors allows the Council to focus on good governance and navigate the organization and First Nations leadership through the political landscape. The Leadership Council plays a vital role in the Chiefs of Ontario and provides an incalculable source of strength, wisdom and leadership. Through their dedication, the Leadership Council will continue to provide guidance to First Nations in Ontario with great minds, hearts and Spirit.
