Fundamentals of Modern Treaty and Self-Government Agreement Implementation (K108)


Type: Classroom
Duration: 07:30 hours

Modern treaties and self-government agreements are key tools for achieving reconciliation between the Government of Canada and Indigenous Peoples. These agreements establish renewed nation-to-nation, Inuit-Crown, government-to-government relationships based on respect, cooperation, partnership, and the recognition of rights. This course gives federal employees an overview of the historical, legal, and policy context of modern treaties and self-government agreements and an opportunity to identify the implications of these agreements for their day-to-day work. This course is offered by Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada with the Land Claims Agreement Coalition.

Topics include:

  • historical, legal, and policy context of modern treaties and self-government agreements
  • Indigenous perspective on modern treaty implementation
  • roles and responsibilities of federal officials
  • Cabinet Directive on the Federal Approach to Modern Treaty Implementation
