Self Government Agreements Nwt

The Sahtu Dene and Metis Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement (SDMCLCA) is calling for a self-management agreement with the Sahtu Dene and Métis of Colville Lake, Norman Wells, Fort Good Hope and Tulita. The agreement provides for a tripartite implementation plan. The parties also negotiated a tripartite agreement on intergovernmental services to fund programs and services, as well as a bilateral funding agreement to support implementation. The parties have also adopted a plan to support intergovernmental relations and support for implementation, which will coordinate the timely and effective implementation of the commitments set out in the governance agreement. On May 29, 1993, on the same date as the signing of the framework agreement, final agreements and self-management agreements were signed with four Yukon First Nations: Vuntut Gwitch`in First Nation; First Nation of Nacho Nyak Dun; Champagne and Aishihik First Nations; teslin Tlingit Council. The Colonization and Self-Management Act was introduced to Parliament on May 31, 1994 and received royal approval on July 7, 1994. The Surface Rights Act received royal approval on December 15, 1994. All three laws came into force on February 14, 1995. The Yukon First Nations Council is a political association that represented the 14 Yukon First Nations in matters of regional interest when the final Umbrella Agreement was signed. It now represents nine of the 11 self-administered Yukon First Nations. One of the strengths of the agreement is that Inuvialuit has had control of the region`s economy and environment, while being a decisive step towards full autonomy. The agreement also provided the new government with $152 million in financial assistance over 14 years, which was put into a trust fund. The Tlicho also receive a share of royalties from the Mackenzie Valley mineral development.

In 2001, the parties entered into an autonomy agreement on a governance agreement (Canada and Meadow Lake First Nations) and a tripartite governance agreement (Canada, Saskatchewan and Meadow Lake First Nations) and continued negotiations for a final agreement. „We need this option to create a new government structure and legislation,“ he said. „For that, I would push an MLA. What`s your vision? The conclusion and implementation of land, resource and self-management agreements meet the interests of all residents of the Northwest Territories. For Aboriginal people, these agreements clearly clarify and ensure respect for their Aboriginal and contractual rights, land ownership and the implementation of the inherent right to autonomy and ensure security. This in turn ensures strong and stable governance, a safer climate for economic and resource development, and greater social well-being in NWT communities. Now, on the eve of a territorial campaign, they are calling for a change of attitude within the N.W.T. government. Some heads of state or government say it should take a step backwards – and they are referring to MLAs and bureaucrats to make that change. Since 2002, tripartite exploratory discussions have been underway in New Brunswick.

Eleven Mi`kmaq and Maliseet First Nation communities are represented by the Assembly of First Nations Chiefs in New Brunswick. On September 9, 2011, the contracting parties signed the Mo`gmaq Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet)/New Brunswick/Canada Umbrella Agreement.
