May 27, 1998, signed by Joseph Gosnell, Nelson Leeson and Edmond Wright of the Nisg`a Nation and By Premier Glen Clark for the Province of British Columbia. Jane Stewart, then Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development, signed the agreement for the Canadian federal government on May 4, 1999. The final Umbrella Agreement (UFA) was concluded in 1988 and concluded in 1990. This is the general “Umbrella” agreement of the Yukon Landclaims package and provides for the general agreement reached by the three parties in a number of areas. Although the agreement is not a legal document, it is a “political” agreement between the three parties. The Umbrella Agreement contains several main themes, all of which are covered. These include the country (Chapter 9), compensation (Chapter 19), administrative autonomy (Chapter 24) and the creation of boards of directors and committees and tribunals to ensure the joint management of a number of specific areas (specific chapters). Final Agreement Implementation Plan Implementation Plan Implementation Plan is a document negotiated and renegotiated by the parties to a land development and/or self-management agreement during negotiations on a final agreement. It is an integral annex to a final agreement, as it defines what needs to be done for the agreement to enter into force, who is responsible for what implementation activities, when and how these activities are carried out. Final agreement A final agreement is the result of fruitful negotiations. It describes agreements between the Aboriginal group, the province or territory and Canada on all outstanding issues, including resources, financial benefits, self-management and land ownership.
The final agreement must be ratified by the parties and signed by the principals. Canada then adopts regulatory laws that implement and validate the final agreement. The final agreement is based on the AIP. It must be ratified and signed by all parties before it takes effect by federal and, in some cases, provincial legislation. It is accompanied by an implementation plan. While the framework agreement provides a framework in which each of Yukon`s 14 First Nations will reach a final claims settlement agreement, all provisions of the UFA are part of each First Nation final agreement (FNF).
