Land Entitlement under Treaty 8
AbstractThis article provides an analysis of the land entitlement provisions of Treaty 8 as they relate to current federal treaty land entitlement (TIE) policy and to the judgment in Lac La Ronge. The authors identify and analyze significant textual, contextual, and historical differences between Treaty 8 and the previous seven numbered Treaties. On the basis of that analysis, the authors advance various proposals in support of a principled policy approach to determining the existence and extent of the obligations placed upon the Crown by Treaty 8 and the land entitlement provisions contained therein.
