Land Governance under the Framework Agreement on First Nation Land Management
First Nations Land Management Resource Centre / Indigenous Services Canada
The Framework Agreement on First Nation Land Management (Framework Agreement) is a First Nation’s driven process that has resulted in First Nations across Canada building their own land governance structures and capacity to take back the control and decision-making of their First Nation lands. One-third of First Nations across Canada are either developing or implementing their own land code and laws or are interested in becoming a signatory to the Framework Agreement.
Participants will learn more from First Nation guests who are re-establishing land governance through their own land codes with support services provided by Indigenous Services Canada and the First Nations Land Management Resource Centre.
