Environment and Natural Resources

Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC) transfers responsibility and control over lands, resources and the environment to Aboriginal people and Northerners through land claim and self-government agreements and devolution to territorial governments. At the same time, AANDC fulfills an important role in developing natural resources and protecting the environment in most First Nations communities and the territories.

What Information is Available?

AANDC works closely with Aboriginal and Northern partners to develop strategies to protect human health and the environment, while facilitating economic development.
