First Nations’ Resource Policies


First Nations’ resource policies provide a means by which First Nations can articulate and communicate their goals, values and decision-making processes to proponents and to other government agencies. These policies can also help clarify internal decision-making and information-sharing processes within a First Nations community.

Although each resource policy will be unique to each First Nations community, these policies can serve to promote shared-decision making by First Nations on the management and development of land and resources within their traditional territories.
