In 1989, the Government of Canada, the Yukon government and the Yukon Indian Council agreed on an agreement in principle that formed the basis for the final Umbrella Agreement. Parliament has ordered the negotiation and inclusion of a framework agreement in individual concluding agreements (modern treaties), while incorporating specific provisions unique to each First Nation. The framework agreement also provided for the negotiation of separate autonomy agreements with each first nation. The framework agreement was signed on 29 May 1993. The Council initiated collaboration with The Kluane First Nation, the Yukon government and Parks Canada to develop a moose management strategy for the Kluane First Nation Core Area. This is a joint effort with these governments and is expected to continue until 2013. Capacity bottlenecks in the ability of First Nations and governments to contribute to project proposals are a challenge ahead for the Board of Directors. This can have an impact on the Yukon Environmental and Socio-Economic Assessment Act. A year ago, the First Nation filed a petition in court explaining that Ottawa was required to renegotiate its financial transfer contract. The petition states that the federal government has been aware of significant funding shortfalls since 2006 and has since deliberately initiated renegotiations.

In addition, in the 2003 auditor general`s report, the Auditor General noted that Canada (now known as Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada) should work with other signatories to land claim agreements to revise annual reports and make them more results-oriented. The 11 self-governing Yukon First Nations have all been involved throughout the process, Kennedy said, noting that 20 Aboriginal governments have signed into Canada since August 27. According to Ottawa`s statement On January 15, 2019, Yukon Supreme Court Chief of Justice Veale stated that the law required Canada to negotiate a stand-alone financial transfer agreement with the Tlingit Council, in accordance with its final agreement and sections 16.1 and 16.3 of the self-government agreement. In these free trade negotiations, funding must be taken into account on the basis of TTC`s actual citizenship, which Justice Veale found that successive Canadian governments have not done so, and must take place before the current TTC free trade agreement expires in March 2019. On November 4, 2015, the Prime Minister announced the new cabinet of Canada`s 29th department. Carolyn Bennett has been appointed Minister of Aboriginal and Northern Affairs. The department`s new applied title is Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada and is reflected in the title of this report. However, the report itself refers to the department as Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada to reflect its name during the 2011-2012 period.
