Kitselas Band Council governs the Kitselas First Nations. The council includes one Chief and several councilors. The number of councilors increases and decreases depending on Kitselas’ population.

Council is generally involved in all major decisions that significantly affect the Band’s programs and services, financial well-being and good standing.

The Kitselas Chief and Council are elected every two years. Any member of Kitselas First Nations, above the age of 18, is eligible to be on council.
