THE LANDS ADVISORY BOARD

The LAB was established by the originating First Nations of the Framework Agreement. The LAB is comprised of an elected Chairman and regionally elected Directors, determined by the Councils of the Operational signatory First Nations. The LAB is the political body supporting signatories to the Framework Agreement in the implementation of their own land management regimes.

Among its roles, the LAB provides strategic direction to the FNLM Resource Centre, proposes amendments to the Framework Agreement and Federal Legislation as necessary, advocates for and negotiates funding with Canada on behalf of the First Nations, and performs whatever political functions or services are agreed to between the LAB and the First Nation.

The LAB remains steadfast in supporting its vision of “First Nations working together to resume jurisdiction over reserve lands and resources.”
