Today, the Framework Agreement has expanded to include an ever-growing number of communities across Canada who are interested in replacing the lands restrictions of the Indian Act with their own land code laws and policies.
Each operational signatory community to the Framework Agreement assumes the full law-making authority and management of their reserve lands, environment and natural resources when they ratify their land code.
Canada ratified the Framework Agreement through the passage of the First Nations Land Management Act, which was assented to June 17, 1999.

A Guide to the Framework Agreement on First Nation Land Management [Lands Advisory Board, LAB]

Publisher:

Year of publication:

The purpose of the Framework Agreement was to recognize the inherent
right of First Nations to resume control over their lands and resources for
the use and benefit of their members without Government interference, by
replacing the land provisions of the Indian Act with First Nation made laws.

The Framework Agreement provides First Nations with the option to govern
their reserve lands outside the Indian Act. The option to regain control of
their lands and resources can only be undertaken with the consent of
the community.
