Allan served his community of Tsawout as Chief for twenty (20) years and as councillor for ten (10) years and is currently serving on Council. Allan has worked to develop infrastructure projects such as a multipurpose health and recreation facility and dealt with many challenges for roads and access to lands. In order to overcome challenges associated with developing infrastructure, Tsawout utilized tools from the First Nations Fiscal Management Act. With this experience in mind, Allan believes that more can be done to support Indigenous groups in closing the infrastructure gap which is why he has stepped forward to serve as FNII Development Board Chair.
