Who is the Lands Advisory Board?

Under the Framework Agreement, the First Nations have established a Lands Advisory Board and a Resource Centre to assist them in implementing their own land management regimes. The LAB is the political body composed of Chiefs regionally elected from among the First Nations involved. The resource centre is the technical body intended to support First Nations in the developmental and operational phases implementing the Framework Agreement.

What does the Lands Advisory Board do?

The Land Advisory Board’s functions include;

  • Provide strategic direction to the Resource Centre
  • proposing to the Minister such amendments to the Framework Agreement and the federal legislation as it considers necessary or advisable
  • in consultation with First Nations, negotiating a funding method with the Minister
  • performing such other functions or services for a First Nation as are agreed to between the Board and the First Nation.
