The process for completing self government /comprehensive claim agreements follows these six steps:

  • Submission of Claim
  • Acceptance
  • Framework agreement
  • Agreement in Principle (AIP)
  • Final agreement and Ratification
  • Implementation

The process for negotiating claims in British Columbia is different from elsewhere in the country. The British Columbia Treaty Commission (BCTC)  provides further information on this process.
