DID YOU KNOW?

 

  • Madawaska Maliseet First Nation was added as a signatory to the Framework Agreement on First Nation Land Management (Framework Agreement) on March 3rd, 2014.

 

  • The purpose of the Framework Agreement was/is to enable First Nations to resume control over our lands and resources for the use and benefit of our members without Government interference, by replacing the land provisions of the Indian Act with First Nation made laws.  

 

  • Under the Framework Agreement, First Nations may choose to opt out of 34 land-related sections of the Indian Act and develop their own land codes in order to govern reserve lands and resources.  A Land Code is the basic land law of the First Nation and will replace the land management provisions of the Indian Act and is drafted and unique to each First Nation.

 

  • Operational First Nations (those that have ratified their Land Codes) are finally able to sit at the head table and make decisions at the speed of business; seizing important opportunities and solidifying economic development partnerships, while protecting the future of their communities.
