First Nations National Land Governance & Economic Development Conference and Trade Show

2019

01-03 April 2019
Winnipeg, Manitoba
Casting away restrictions with the
Framework Agreement on First Nation Land Management

The Conference

The First Nations Lands Advisory Board (LAB) and the First Nations Land Management Resource Centre Inc. (RC), are hosting the 2nd First Nations National Land Governance & Economic Development Conference and Trade Show.  The conference will be held April 1st to 3rd, 2019 at the RBC Convention Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Building on the success of the inaugural First Nations National Land Governance and Economic Development Conference and Trade Show in 2016, the 2019 event will focus on how First Nations have been able to cast away the restrictions of the Indian Act and develop new trends in economic development with the Framework Agreement on First Nation Land Management (Framework Agreement).  
 

The conference will bring together hundreds of interested parties from across Canada, all interested in discovering more about Framework Agreement economic successes, such as internal and external community investments of over $270 Million, and over 4,000 jobs generated on Signatory First Nation reserves.

If you are interested in participating in this exciting, up-coming event, please feel free to register using the link below, or contact us with any questions.

 

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED!  SEE YOU AT THE CONFERENCE!

 
What is The Framework Agreement?

The Framework Agreement was signed by 14 First Nations and the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development on February 12, 1996. The Framework Agreement was ratified by Canada on June 17, 1999 with the passage of the First Nations Land Management Act. The First Nations complete their ratification with the passage of a Community Land Code.


The Framework Agreement is not a treaty and does not affect treaty or other constitutional rights of the signatory First Nations. What the Framework Agreement does is provide a process by which these First Nations are able to resume jurisdiction over their reserve lands and natural resources. The Framework Agreement ends Canada’s one hundred and twenty-five year history of control under the patronizing Indian Act.


By resuming jurisdiction over their reserve lands and natural resources, these First Nations are now able to complete economic development planning at the speed of business. Years of delays and non-action under the Indian Act are now replaced by decision-making in days and weeks by Chief, Council and Community under their Land Code.
