The Manitoba Treaty Land Entitlement Agreement details the way Canada, Manitoba and the Treaty Land Entitlement Committee (“TLEC”) of Manitoba Inc. have agreed to fulfill outstanding Treaty Land Entitlement (“TLE”) claims in Manitoba for Entitlement First Nations (“EFNs”) represented by the TLEC. The TLE Framework Agreement attempts to settle the land debt that is owed to the First Nations that did not receive all the lands that they were entitled to under Treaties 1, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 10.
The Manitoba Treaty Land Entitlement Framework Agreement (MFA) was signed on May 29, 1997 between Canada, Manitoba, and the Treaty Land Entitlement Committee (TLEC). Under this historic agreement, up to 445,417 hectares (1,100,626 acres) of land will be provided to the Entitlement First Nations (EFNs) represented by the TLEC. Manitoba will provide up to 399,008 hectares (985,949 acres) of Crown land. Canada will contribute $76 million.
