Project Recommendations Action Plan Expected
Completion Date
Program Response
1. Review the recommendations stemming from the Inuvialuit component, and provide comments on behalf of Canada to Evaluation, Performance Measurement and Review Committee on the Inuvialuit recommendations. Review of the Inuvialuit recommendations has begun. Canada will provide comments to Evaluation, Performance Measurement and Review Committee on those recommendations that are directed towards Canada.

Start Date: Winter, 2013

Completion: Spring, 2014

Revised completion date: September 2015

Status: Ongoing until Summer 2015

Update/Rationale:
As of 31/12/2014:

  1. These changes are being discussed internally.
  2. Canada has heavily promoted the use of supplementary funding to address one-time needs in the ISR. Renewal of funding for treaty partners will begin negotiations in March 2015.
  3. Canada has been given permission to use 10 year funding agreements with the NWT recipients, which includes the Inuvialuit.
  4. Canada has factored this point of view into the Board Analysis review of funding for Boards in the North.

The IFA ICC Economic Measures Working Group is currently backing a study of 5 Inuvialuit communities and their economy.

The program requested a revised completion date to summer 2015.  The Inuvialuit were/are seeking a lot of things which fall into the GNWT's jurisdiction but the GNWT declined to participate in the process, so the Inuvialuit requests will go without any response from the GNWT.

AES: Revised completion date.

2. Continuing with the Implementation Change Agenda, strengthen the "whole of government approach" to monitoring and implementing treaty obligations and risks. Work has already begun on the Implementation Change agenda and the development of resources, accountability and monitoring tools and training/assistance for other government departments.

Start Date: already begun

Completion: ongoing

Revised completion date: September 2015

Status: Ongoing until March 31, 2015

Update/Rationale:
As of 31/12/2014:

An approach to improving modern treaty implementation is under development and will be brought forward for approval in March 2015.

AES: Revised completion date.

3. Undertake a research agenda to support the monitoring of the impacts of modern treaties. AANDC has approached academia with the view of supporting academic research on the impacts of CLCAs and SGAs. Any initiative to monitor impacts requires the participation of both government and Aboriginal signatories. We will continue to reach out the Land Claims Agreement Coalition with the view of collaborating on this initiative.
