On Tuesday 9 February 20021, the Treaty-Crown meeting with Minister Seamus O’Regan, Natural Resources Minister created the political space for meaningful dialogue and set plans on these areas for further development:

  • National Benefit Sharing Framework
  • The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples
  • The Natural Resources Transfer Agreement – Hunting Infringements
  • Unfinished Treaty Business

A major outcome of this meeting was the shared commitment to revisit and assess progress on the matters and interests that were raised with NRCAN. Which is anticipated to be held in the coming months.

Agowiidiiwin is the sacred international agreement that the Nation is committed to leveraging for a prosperous economic base in resource revenues that the Treaty 2 Nation is entitled to.

“The overarching goal in its entirety is to fully support our Anishinaabe way of Life” said Ogichidaa Eugene Eastman.
