First Nations Land Management Act and Third Party Interests
AbstractIn 1999 the Government of Canada enacted the First Nations Land Management Act, which is designed to provide First Nations with increased control and authority over land management on Indian reserve land and to replace related provisions in the Indian Act. This article addresses concerns regarding third party interests and licences under this new Act, in that such interests may be less secure than under the old land management regime. The author then outlines some potential remedies to the existing ambiguities found in the new land management regime as a way to provide practical suggestions for First Nations to fully develop and utilize their First Nation land.
