Effective tonight, January 11th, 2021, Chisasibi will impose a curfew from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. until February 8th, 2021 due to the recent events in Eeyou Istchee (Region 18) with respect to the rise in positive COVID-19 cases to restrict non essential travel and gatherings within the community. This will include the prohibition of any social gatherings after 10 p.m. and before 6 a.m.
The Eeyou Eenou Police Force (EEPF) and the CNC check-point employees will be enforcing this temporary curfew within Chisasibi. Peace officers are authorized to stop and enquire on people’s movement in public places. An exemption for essential workers or for emergencies will be accepted as a valid reason to circulate during curfew. Employers in Chisasibi must provide to their essential or on call employees a valid letter confirming their exemption for the curfew.
Following the Cree Nation of Chisasibi Local Law 2017-003 regulating alcoholic beverages, curfew and certain nuisances, sanctions will apply in the case of people not respecting the curfew boundaries.
