Specific Claims Greater than $150 million

Specific claim settlements can vary considerably in size, depending on factors such as the type and age of the claim, with an average settlement value of $8.5 million.

At the high end of the value range, specific claims over $150 million require a distinct process due to their size and complexity. Although there are very few claims of this value, they represent a significant expenditure of public funds and tend to be highly complex. As such, these claims must go through the Cabinet Process  , to ensure appropriate oversight, in the interests of Aboriginal people and all Canadians.
