Whereas:

  1. The Parties are also the parties to the Selkirk First Nation Final Agreement Implementation Plan ("SFNFA Plan");
  2. Paragraph 21 of the SFNFA Plan allows the Parties to amend the SFNFA Plan by agreement at any time, and requires that that any such amendment be made in writing by the Parties;
  3. The Parties now wish to amend the SFNFA Plan to reflect the outcome of recent negotiations regarding funding for the Selkirk Renewable Resources Council;

Now Therefore, the Parties agree that the SFNFA Plan is amended as follows:

  1. Paragraph 12 is deleted and replaced with the following:
    • 12. Subject to any amendment of the SFNFA Plan by the Parties, and subject to paragraph 148, the Yukon shall pay $144,657 (2014 constant dollars) per annum for the ten year period described in paragraph 13 to the Selkirk Renewable Resources Council established pursuant to 16.6.0 of the SFNFA. This payment will be subject to annual adjustments in the manner described in Part 6 of Schedule 1 of the UFA Implementation Plan (Appendix A).
  2. Paragraph 13 is deleted and replaced with the following:
    • 13. Subject to any amendment of the SFNFA Plan by the Parties, the payment by Canada to the Yukon of the amount described in paragraph 12, or any amended amount required to be paid, represents the fulfilment of Canada's obligation to provide funding to the Selkirk Renewable Resources Council for the ten year period running from April 1, 2014 to March 31, 2024, pursuant to 16.6.7 of the SFNFA.
  3. Immediately following paragraph 14 a new clause is added as follows:
    • 14B. Subject to any amendment of the SFNFA Plan by the Parties, payment of the amount identified in paragraph 12 to the Selkirk Renewable Resources Council shall be subject to annual approval pursuant to the annual budget review and approval process established in 16.6.7 of the SFNFA. A carryover of 15% of the annual allocation will be permitted; any amount over this will be treated as surplus and will be recovered by Government. The funding arrangement established pursuant to paragraph 14 shall address the 15% carryover and process for recovery.
  4. This Amendment Agreement may be executed in any number of counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original, but all of which together shall constitute one and the same document, and the date of this Amending Agreement shall be deemed to be the date on which the last party signs.
