The Metlakatla Governing Council currently oversees approximately 3,464 hectares of land on 16 reserves. Metlakatla has a population of 756 members including 649 residing off reserve. A large majority of off-reserve members live in Prince Rupert, within Metlakatla traditional territory.
The Metlakatla Governing Council is the representative government of the Metlakatla membership. The Governing Council is comprised of an elected chief and six councillors, each of whom serve three-year terms. In March 2007, the Metlakatla members ratified a custom election code that removed election provisions from under the jurisdiction of the Indian Act. The council functions as the governing unit of the band and as an administrator of social services.
