The agreement recognizes a number of unique rights and contributions from the CAFN as co-manager of the park. This includes: “Strategic is committed to working with CAFN as soon as claims are acquired to develop cooperative and respectful relationships, to identify local business and employment opportunities and to assist in mineral exploration and development. The ongoing consultation should raise Strategic`s awareness of THE CAFN`s concerns and allow CAFN to better understand preferred exploration techniques and their alternatives,” said Douglas Eaton, President and CEO of Strategic. “This exploration agreement provides a clear framework for the early approach to consultation and a way forward to develop a broader cooperation and utility agreement if a project moves from exploration to economic evaluation.” If each first nation reaches its final agreement, it also obtains a self-management agreement (SGA). This agreement emerges from Chapter 24 of the Framework Agreement and defines the powers, authorities and responsibilities of First Nation governments. The agreements provide funding that supports the provision of programs and services at the First Nation level. After the AMS, the First Nation now has the power to pass and pass laws about its country and its citizens, tax them, provide urban planning, and manage or manage countries and resources. Each first nation will have a constitution that will contain the membership code, establish governing bodies and provide for its powers and protect the rights and freedoms of citizens. As self-governing bodies, First Nations are not prevented from asserting the rights of a Canadian citizen or business.
