The Lands Resource Consultation staff provide liaison services between Curve Lake First Nation Membership, Curve Lake Government and external agencies, governments, or proponents on any proposed development or legislative amendments impacting treaty and aboriginal rights.
To ensure our interests and rights are being protected within our territory, on May 27th, 2013, Curve Lake Chief and Council adopted the “Curve Lake First Nation Consultation and Accommodation Standards” and on January 1st, 2016 the document came into effect. All Governments and companies interested in doing business or making decisions about any developments within the traditional and treaty territory of Curve Lake First Nation need to take notice.
The Consultation and Accommodation Standards are available to documents section under the Lands, Rights and Resource title or you may request to receive a hard copy by contacting Melissa Dokis.
Archaeological resources are of great interest for our First Nation and need to be respected in the proper way. To ensure the proper respect is given to our ancestors and their belongings, Curve Lake First Nation is proud to offer trained Archaeological Liaisons to work alongside archaeologists on any First Nation sites within our territory. To request an archaeological liaison or if you have any questions about the fees or the program, contact Melissa Dokis.
Curve Lake First Nation is proud of our heritage and history and highlight both through the Consultation Program. It is encouraged that proponents and governments are educated about Curve Lake First Nation and the First Nation is pleased to offer a historical documentary film, “Oshkigmong – A Place Where I Belong” that provides a historical, treaty and current day perspective of Curve Lake First Nation. The video is $10.00 plus shipping and any profits go towards producing additional historical videos.
