What It Means: Ratifying Legislation
When the Framework Agreement on First Nation Land Management was concluded, Canada had committed to ratify the agreement in Parliament. This was done through the passage of the First Nations Land Management Act in June of 1999.
Signatory First Nations also ratify the Framework Agreement through the passage of their land codes.
The Framework Agreement on First Nation Land Management is the guiding document that both Canada and First Nations are actively working to implement.
