6. Unlocking the Economic Value of Reserve Lands through Land Management (INAC)
2:15 pm - 3:45 pm

Leasing is the primary tool available to First Nations to unlock the economic value contained in reserve land. Leasing arrangements can be achieved in a few different ways. A First Nation can rely on INAC staff to negotiate and draft the lease terms for reserve lands that are specifically designated for leasing purposes. Through the Reserve Land Environmental Management Program (RLEMP), a trained Lands Manager working for the First Nation prepares the Lease documents for INAC to review and approve. Finally, some leases are negotiated directly between the First Nation and a Lessee through the First Nation Land Management Act (FNLM). This session will provide a basic understanding of how these three leasing regimes work and what the benefits and challenges for each may be.
