Agreement Lands

If Tsawwassen First Nation buys land within the brunswick Point within 50 years of the treaty`s entry into force, Tsawwassen First Nation can host the land in its settlement areas. In August 2016, approximately 90 per cent of TLE transactions took place in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Compliance with the TLE agreements contributes to the creation of partnerships and promotes the economic development of the surrounding reserves and municipalities. As a general rule, a TLE transaction agreement defines a quantity of land that a First Nation can acquire either on a buyer-consenting seller basis, or from an unoccupied Crown country or, in some cases, in an agreed-upon purchase or selection area. The Tsawwassen agreement was negotiated by the Canadian government, the Government of British Columbia and the Tsawwassen First Nation. The final agreement provides Tsawwassen First Nation with certain rights and benefits in terms of land and resources, as well as self-management of its lands and resources and members. It provides security for the ownership and management of land and resources, as well as the exercise of powers and governmental authorities of the federal state, provinces and tsawwassen. All provinces in the final Tsawwassen agreement are located in the Agricultural Reserve (LLA). When the treaty enters into force, 207 hectares of this area will be removed from the ARL. The balance of Crown Province, which has approximately 227 hectares, including the Boundary Bay parcels, will remain in the LLA.
