There are some differences between the human claim agreements and self-management. While land agreements certainly define the rules for resource management and co-management with respect to roles, management and environmental management, some elements of land claims tend to be transactional. There are, for example. B, a transfer of a capital transfer, a payment of the basic right, a transfer of land. These questions are generally more transactional in the application. When we come to self-management, as the people here saw this evening, these documents are very much a living document, because it is about governance. Governance needs to evolve, which is why we have included Chapter 26, which allows the parties to look at the agreement and its implementation in depth when they decide together that this is what is needed for the future. There`s this mechanism for looking at. Under the 1993 Sahtu Dene and Metis agreement, delegated then negotiated a self-management agreement with the Northwest government and the Canadian government.
The final self-management agreement was ratified by a majority by accession in March 2014. The final self-management agreement was signed by its leaders, the Government of the Northwest and the Government of Canada in February 2015, the Northwest Territories Legislative Assembly in March 2015 and adopted by the Canadian Parliament by Bill C-63 in June 2015. On September 1, 2016, the government defyed got`n entered the government and the government, which legally assumed all the tasks previously assumed by the First Nation Délen, the Del-Nen-Land-Gesellschaft and the Charter Community of Dél`n`.  Once all settlement efforts have been exhausted, will this dispute resolution mechanism make it possible to solve the problem definitively? But over time, what happens to the federal government is that it is not up to the spirit of the agreement and is relying on strict and narrow interpretations to get out of the obligations. That is one of the things we have noticed. The other issue is financial. The federal government does not want to pay the money it has to pay. This is the experience of many land agreements in our country. Tonight, therefore, we are here with great hope and enthusiasm for the future. The employees of the Dél-N`First Nation Band, the Dél-N`Land-Gesellschaft and the Charter Community planned and prepared for this change.
They ensured that the transition proceeded smoothly, that there was no negative impact on the staff of the three organisations, and that there was no interruption of programmes and services within the Community due to the transition to autonomy. I think it is fair and open that the department has taken learning points from these experiences. Certainly, the auditor`s office spoke about the implementation of past agreements, and the service responded. The way we develop implementation plans has evolved over several previous agreements. We have learned, for example, to avoid formulations that may be controversial or obscure in the future. The use of objective language in agreements is something we have moved away from, as it is difficult for everyone to understand what these objectives apply to when they are actually implemented. We have moved away from certain linguistic techniques that we insert into the agreements. Our negotiating team has worked hard for 19 years with officials from the Government of Canada and the Government of the Northwest Territories. On behalf of our Community and our elders, I thank all those who have worked so hard to conclude this agreement. Mr. Hamilton: Sure.
First, it is important to note that, through these negotiations, Canada is fulfilling its obligations to negotiate self-management agreements at the community level, as provided for in the 1993 Sahtu Land Rights Agreement.
