If the vote passes, AMC will hold a byelection for the role of Grand Chief at a later date. Dumas, a member of Mathias Colomb Cree Nation from Pukatawagan, has held the position since July 2017. He won a bid for a second term last summer.

In 2019, Dumas took a leave of absence after being accused of sending unwanted messages to a woman.

The current workplace investigation began in March of this year after a complaint against him from a senior AMC staff member. He remains suspended without pay.
