3.87 This review examined the federal government`s efforts to fulfill its responsibilities with respect to the Inuvialuit Final Agreement. The performance of these tasks is important because the agreement is constitutionally protected and involves important obligations for Canada. In addition, the extent to which the federal government is meeting its obligations under this agreement may undermine its credibility in negotiating future agreements with other Aboriginal communities. The Inuvialuit, Canada and the GNWT are currently negotiating an Inuvialuit self-management agreement. The Inuvialuit Final Agreement (IFA) came into force on July 25, 1984 and was the first fonal claims agreement governed by the NWT. 3. (2) For greater certainty, the intention of the parties is that this agreement should be a focal claim agreement within the meaning of section 35(3) of the Constitution Act 1982. In addition, the five audited services will take fully into account this recommendation when reviewing and, if necessary, improving existing systems and procedures for monitoring the awarding of contracts to the Inuvialuit, which are not subject to public tenders, if they are able to provide the goods and services on an appropriate basis. Work on federal procurement processes, which contain provisions for the awarding of contracts in national parks, is already underway and is being developed to gather the same information for other comprehensive land rights agreements. The federal government`s efforts to meet its obligations under the agreement are critical to their relationship with the Inuvialuit.

They will also likely influence the credibility of the government by other Aboriginal groups negotiating future land agreements. 3.79 In 1984, when the agreement was signed, the government appointed DAC as the head of implementation coordination, while other federal organizations were responsible for fulfilling their portfolio obligations. That is why we expected INAC to coordinate how to measure progress and to monitor and follow up on progress towards these principles. This would serve both to determine whether the agreement achieves what it should achieve and to acquire information on the structure of future land use agreements. 3.82 In 2003, the Court considered the transfer of federal obligations to the North (2003, Chapter 8 – Indian and Northern Affairs Canada: Transfer of Federal Obligations to the North). In the course of this review, the Court found that, in implementing its obligations under the two comprehensive agreements on fungal requirements (Nunavut and Gwich`in) before us, the Court emphasized the letter of its commitments, but did not take into account the spirit and intent of the agreements. 1. What is the Inuvialuit Final Agreement (IFA)? The AFI is a comprehensive agreement on fungal claims between the Canadian government and the Inuvialuit, which provides security and clarity with respect to the ownership and use of lands and resources in the Inuvialuit Sttlement Region. . .
