Dramatic changes have occurred over the past fifteen years in the jurisdictional framework for land resources, land use and development in the Yukon Territory and the Northwest Territories. These changes are primarily a result of: federal legislation revisions; the impending creation of Nunavut; the finalization of Aboriginal land claim agreements; and the devolution of responsibilities from the federal to the territorial governments. ... Jurisdictional responsibilities are described in this document as of August 31, 1996 for land resources, land use and development within the territories concerning: federal lands; and land confirmed for Aboriginal groups under land claim agreement settlement legislation. ... In each chapter [i.e., eight books: four covering the Yukon Territory and four covering the N.W.T.], the jurisdictional regime for a particular geographic region is described, based on territory, then on the land claim agreements. ... Each chapter dealing with land claim settlement areas, begins with a section on the settlement agreement. This section also describes the roles of administrative bodies (such as surface rights boards) established through the settlement agreements. The second section of each chapter provides an overview of the region's general jurisdictional categories based on federal and Aboriginal land ownership. For example, there are three categories of land in the Yukon First Nation settlement areas in the Yukon Territory: 1. Settlement Lands to which the First Nations received title under their Land Claim Settlement Agreements; 2 Reserves under the Indian Act; and 3. Federal lands. The remainder of each chapter analyses each region's land ownership categories. For the categories relating to settlement lands and federal lands, the jurisdictional regime is discussed under the following headings: Land Ownership; Land Use; General Access Rights; Non-Renewable Resources; Forestry and Plants; Water Use and Waste Deposit; Fish and Wildlife; Environmental Assessment; and Economic Development. ... This chapter [Book one - Yukon] describes the jurisdictional regime in that portion of the Yukon Territory claimed by Yukon First Nations. This area is generally bounded: on the west by Alaska, on the south by British Columbia, on the east by the Northwest Territories and the Gwich'in Yukon Transboundary Agreement settlement area; and on the north by the Inuvialuit Settlement Region. Fourteen Aboriginal land claims by the Yukon First Nations affect this area. Only the Champagne and Aishihik First Nations, the First Nation of Nach Nyak Dun, the Teslin Tlingit Council, and the Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation have final settlement agreements. The rest of the area remains primarily federal lands. Jurisdictional responsibilities there remain unchanged. Agreements and legislation are current as of August 31, 1996. ... (Au)
