Relationship to the Crown
The Nisga'a Final Agreement (the Treaty) was British Columbia's first modern treaty. A landmark in the relationship between Canada and its Aboriginal peoples — the Treaty requires a responsible and responsive relationship and avenue of communication between three governments. The governments of Canada, British Columbia, and the Nisga'a Nation are partners in the Nisga'a Final Agreement, which sets out Nisga'a Lands and the Nisga'a Nation's right of self-government.
Because three governments share responsibility for the Treaty, an implementation committee was formed to provide a forum for the partners to discuss its implementation.
