Scope and contentA background report prepared by officials from the Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development and the Department of Justice. It describes the treaty principles and court decisions upon which previous land claims settlements were built, and the importance of "certainty" when defining the rights of Aboriginal people with respect to land and resources. The report argues that certainty is crucial for the future economic wellbeing of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Canadians. It outlines current and potential models for achieving certainty, and possible clauses to add to future land claims agreements to "address Aboriginal rights." Finally, it lists the ten comprehensive land claims agreements that had been concluded between 1973 and 1994.
