The Penticton Indian Band Government structure (Chief and Council) is elected every 4 years under our own custom election system. Our Band Council is comprised of a Band Chief and 8 Council Members. Each Council Member, including the Chief (as elected), is appointed to a specific portfolio which will directly involve them with each program or service the Penticton Band Administration is responsible for delivering to the band community. Currently we have the following portfolios:


  • External and Inter-Governmental Affairs & Economic Development & All Portfolios
  • Education, Language and Culture
  • Health and Wellness
  • Infrastructure, Housing and Public Works
  • Social Development
  • Lands and Natural Resources 
  • Community Safety and Emergency Services
