Update on the Algonquin Land Claim
October 18, 2016 – After many years of negotiation and consultation, the Algonquins of Ontario today signed the Algonquin Land Claim Agreement in Principle (AIP) with the Governments of Ontario, and Canada. The signing of the AIP begins a process of negotiating a legally binding agreement between the parties and finalizing all aspects of the land, finances, and legal entitlements that are considered in this Agreement.
For those directly affected by the proposed terms (landowners, municipalities, businesses etc.), the Government of Ontario will be communicating specifics in the weeks to come.
This new stage in the settlement signals the end of the formal role of FOCA, and other stakeholder groups as part of the Committee of External Advisors. FOCA will remain plugged-in to the negotiations specifically with the Province of Ontario representatives on behalf of our members in this region. (Source: FOCA)
ALCA will continue to monitor the negotiation process and will keep you up to date.
