Land Governance Authority, Committees, and Priority-based Workplans

Presenting Organization

First Nations Land Management Resource Centre


Once a First Nation’s members have approved a land code, the transition into land governance under that land code typically begins with establishing a priority-based strategic workplan that focuses on how new authorities will be exercised and responsibilities will be met.  Many First Nations will build Lands Governance Committees to support land code implementation and give community members an important way to participate in the governance of First Nation Lands.

Join our First Nations guests and the Resource Centre for an overview and discussion of the best practices and tools for establishing land governance authority, committees, and priority-based workplans for land governance under a land code.
