On September 29, 2020, the newly elected President of the Federation Brian Davidson sent a message announcing the newly elected Board and Role of the Federation. This new role developed from the withdrawal of funding from the Municipality of Val-des-Monts. This was explained in a message sent to members in June 2020 which stated, in part:
The Municipality has ended its memorandum of understanding with the Federation which will end on September 30, 2020. Consequently, the Federation will no longer be able to retain the services of its Consultant-Expert and will contravene its mandate as defined by its statute and its general regulations. The massive resignations within the Board of the Federation, effective on September 30, will force the Member Associations to question the future of the Federation. In the coming weeks, you will receive the 2019 Annual Report, the 2019 Financial Report, as well as an invitation for nominations to form a new council. It will be up to the new council to carry out the consultation to determine the new orientation of the Federation.
The following documents were provided by the Federation.
- Letter from the Mayor – Lettre du maire 20-05-18 (available in French only)
- Réponse de la Fédération (FR) / Federation’s response (EN)
