The Kitselas Treaty Department also deals with Kitselas’ specific claims.
As per Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC), “Specific claims deal with the past grievances of First Nations. These grievances relate to Canada’s obligations under historic treaties or the way it managed First Nation funds or assets.”
The Government of Canada resolves these claims by negotiating settlements with First Nations.
Kitselas Specific Claims include:
• Lot 113
• Copper River
• Highway 16
• Grand Trunk Railway
Some of the claims have been successful, others are still in process while others have failed.
