The Nisga`a Final Agreement

CONSIDERING that Canadian courts have held that the best way to achieve this reconciliation is to negotiate and obtain agreements, rather than being the subject of litigation or conflict; (b) except in the scope of Article 5.8 of the Property Tax Agreement, the Tax (Rural) Act. In addition, many Nisga`a government agencies are subject to federal or provincial standards that adopt a “meet or beat” approach. This approach is being adopted in a number of areas, including education, child and family services, adoption and forestry. The well-being of children is a good example of how it works. Nisga`a laws are a priority if they meet or exceed provincial child protection standards – but federal and provincial laws that require notification of children in health care continue to apply.

The Nisga treaty defines the country and resources that are part of the agreement between Canada, B.C. and the Nisga`a Nation. The treaty defines Nisga`s right to autonomy and the power to manage land and resources. The treaty and related agreements are common to the Nisga`a: from the early 1970s, successive judicial proceedings confirmed that the rights and title of Aboriginal people are rights and exist, whether governments recognize them or not. In 1982, Act 35 contained a provision that recognizes and upholds existing Aboriginal and contractual rights. In 1983, an amendment was introduced to clarify that it includes rights in land agreements. 2 The final agreement Nisg`a`a is a treaty and a claim agreement even within the meaning of paragraphs 25 and 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982. 10 (1) The Deputy Governor of the Council may, on behalf of Her Majesty, authorize any member of the Executive Council in the law of British Columbia to enter into an agreement under the final agreement Nisg-a`a. 3. The Minister responsible for administering the Finance Administration Act is authorized to enter into an agreement amending the tax treaty and may sign the amending agreement before or after its approval by the Deputy Governor of the Council.
