Title: Indigenous peoples and fiscal relationships: The international experience
Author(s): Fiscal Realities Economists
Abstract: This study examines the recent experiences of Australia, New Zealand and the United States with fiscal relationships for indigenous people and compares these to Canada's situation. Fiscal relationships for indigenous people are slowly evolving. Their importance to economic prosperity and self-determination is gaining recognition. While there are striking similarities among indigenous peoples outside of Canada, each group faces a unique political context and hence may undertake initiatives that are not pertinent to the Canadian situation. There is no complete functioning fiscal relationship model in any country that Canada can emulate.
