Land Code Development

The Kettle & Stony Point First Nation Chief and Council drafted a Land Code land law through Committee and consultation with Members .

The Land Code will replace sections of the Indian Act as they pertain to lands management. This process was made possible through the Framework Agreement on First Nation Land Management, which was ratified by Canada by the passage of the First Nation Land Management Act.

Prior to implementation, Members will have to accept the Land Code through a ratification vote on March 6, 2015.

Once accepted, the Land Code will enable the First Nation to manage lands and resources at the community level. It will give the First Nation the freedom to develop the First Nation community without the strongholds and restrictions imposed under the Indian Act.
