Comprehensive Land Claim and Self-Government Negotiation Tables

The Government of Canada negotiates Comprehensive Land Claim and Self-Government Agreements with Aboriginal groups and provincial/territorial governments across Canada.

Visit the: Aboriginal and Treaty Rights Information System (ATRIS)


* These tables are categorized as comprehensive land claim negotiations because they have the dual focus of bringing clarity to Aboriginal rights and implementing the historic Peace and Friendship Treaties of 1760–1761. The negotiated agreements will honour historic treaty rights. For more information on these tables, please visit the East Coast Negotiations on Aboriginal and Treaty Rights and Self Government.
