Indigenous Agreement Making

There are also many resources that have been developed in recent years and are now available online. The guidelines on best practices, flexible and sustainable agreements developed in 2009 by the Joint Working Group on Indigenous Populations are an example of this. Alternatively, the Native Title Act allows national title groups and other interested parties to voluntarily enter into agreements known as Indigenous Land Use Agreements (ILAAs). ILUAs can cover both future actions (e.g. B exploration or mining activities) and future activities (e.g. B user and access agreements governing coexent rights). Upon registration, ILUA shall bind all parties and holders of national securities to the terms of the agreement. Consult the Modern Treaties – Full Focal Claims and Self-Management Agreements map to learn more about the modern treaties in force to date across Canada, and consult the Aboriginal and Contractual Rights Information System to learn more about any agreement, including the full text of the agreement and summary information. Use the name of the indigenous group, the name of the agreement, or any other term as the keyword, and then click the title Contracts and Agreements on the search box to find the associated records.

Contractual and Aboriginal rights (commonly referred to as Indigenous rights) are recognized and reaffirmed in Section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982 and are also an important part of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples that the Canadian government has committed to adopt. In both cases, it is important to identify the need for technical or legal assistance at an early stage of negotiating planning, so that it can be supported, if it is likely to be most useful, and provide the information necessary for informed decision-making. There are a large number of resources that a PBC can rely on to support its negotiations and the implementation of its agreements. For many PCCs, the regional title representative body will be able to assist in trading and provide resources to support consultations with the broader native securities group.

In addition, a PBC may be able to obtain technical or legal advice from other professional service providers for a fee for the pro-bono services or base. The “Agreements, Treaties and Treaties” database is a valuable collection of information and examples of agreements between Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders and others in Australia, as well as between indigenous peoples and others abroad. The materials it contains can provide useful information and resources for PCs involved in finding the agreement.. . .
