The local institution that governs Sheshatshiu is the Sheshatshiu Innu First Nation Band Council. This council is formed by the chief and 6 councilors. The current chief is Sebastien Benuen. The Band council is in charge of several services and has 8 departments: Health, Education, Community Services, Economic Development, Finance, Operations, Public Works and Recreation.

Message from the Chief Sebastien Benuen

I am pleased to announce the long-awaited web site of the Sheshatshiu Innu First Nation. Here, Sheshatshiu community members will find useful information about Sheshatshiu Innu First Nation Band Council services, programs and announcements. You can also find in this web site contact info to reach us.

In the digital era, it is very important for any community to have all the relevant information posted in the internet. Having a community web site also helps young people to be more in touch with the Band Council activities and programs. I very much hope that everybody enjoys and find this site useful.
