Specific allegations relate to complaints made by First Nations to the federal government for non-compliance with their legal obligations arising from historical contracts and/or the way it managed First Nations funds or assets. The federal government resolves these claims by negotiating specific compensation agreements with First Nations. Although the State Government has not signed these agreements, it is working with the federal government to allow additional reserve allocations resulting from specific debt clearing agreements that contain a land element. First Nations, which have not received all the countries to which they were entitled to land authorization (TEL) under contracts signed by the Crown and First Nations, can apply to the Government of Canada for a land law contract. TLE implementation agreements are negotiated between First Nations and the Government of Canada, usually with the participation of provincial and territorial governments. The federal government must meet contractual obligations to provide First Nations with the promised amount of reserve countries. Since the signing of the framework agreement on September 22, 1992, eight other First Nations, who were not originally signatories to the framework agreement, have been validated under the framework agreement and their specific agreements have been ratified and signed. In 1992, the provincial and federal governments and 25 First Nations signed the Saskatchewan Treaty Framework Agreement on Basic Conditions for Land Rights. It has set out a framework for the implementation of THE LET obligations.
Eight subsequent TLE agreements with First Nations were signed. The TLE agreements are complete. Part of the provincial government`s role in implementing the LET agreements is to ensure that all third-party interests are identified in the provinces and clarified and resolved prior to the establishment of reserves. This brochure describes the municipal service agreements, tax cards and statutory arrangements that were agreed upon when creating a First Nations reserve space in urban municipalities. In addition, a roundtable was established in the Northeast to encourage local governments, interest groups and First Nations to meet with Treaty 8 First Nations and discuss agreements.
