Results-Based Approach to Treaty and Self-Government Negotiations

The Government of Canada is moving toward a results-based approach to its participation in treaty and self-government negotiations. This new approach responds to past calls for change. The goal is to create results-based negotiations by focusing resources on the most productive tables, promoting alternative measures, when appropriate, and streamlining processes. As a first step to achieve these goals, the Government of Canada will engage with its negotiating partners across the country in the coming months.
