Lands Manager Toolkit & Training Program
Grand Council Treaty #3
March 2021 to Present
Stewardship of the land is a practice undertaken in Treaty #3 territory since Time Immemorial. Although these practices had been interrupted by settler society and the imposition of colonial laws, First Nations and Indigenous
organizations like Grand Council Treaty #3 have made significant progress in reclaiming this right and responsibility. Lands Management expertise and capacity has therefore become increasingly important in recent years as communities seek to understand, prepare for, and take advantage of opportunities as they relate to development within their territory. It is a critical piece of Grand Council Treaty #3’s objective to support the Nation
in the exercise of inherent jurisdiction, sovereignty, Nation-building, traditional governance, and self-determination.
Narratives is responsible for developing and delivering a Lands Manager Toolkit and Lands Manager Capacity Training Program. The purpose of the Program is to increase capacity and resources within member communities in relation to Impact Assessment and Environmental Assessment processes at the federal and provincial levels, and to facilitate increased participation and collaboration in activities proposed or occurring in their territory.
