Lands, Rights & Resources

Vision Statement:

Upon the foundation of community values and vision that promotes and preserves our relationship with mother earth, which has defined and will continue to define our identity and culture as Anishnaabe People, the Lands Department will build and secure the framework for our First Nation lands by putting into place ways and laws that will provide both the protection and the freedom for each person, their family, and the whole community to fulfill their potential. Each way and law will be given the consideration to its importance for our next seven generations.

Lands Department Programs and Services

Lands Services

The Lands Department has the capacity to identify, evaluate and interpret evidence relating to interests in, title to and status of reserve land. In regards to the Indian Lands Registry System (ILRS) the Lands Department prepares instruments such as transfers, leases, assignments, and addendums. The Lands Department also registers the above mentioned documents as well as mortgages and Death Certificates into the ILRS. We are can also offer boundary clarification to locatees. A Land Use Policy is currently in development. This document will eventually become a Land Use By-Law for Curve Lake. The Lands Officer is also available to Commission of Affidavits.

Curve Lake First Nation lands are administered under the Reserve Lands Environmental Management Program (RLEMP).

Septic Remediation Program

The intent of this program is to address the environmental effects and public health and safety issues associated with improperly functioning individual onsite waste water systems (septic systems). It is in the best interest of our entire community to ensure that our land and water is protected and healthy.

The Septic Remediation Program dates have been set for the septic pumps in Curve Lake; June 26 to 28th and July 4th to 6th, 2018.

This program will allow Curve Lake First Nation members to have their septic tanks pumped out for a discounted price of $50.00. The regular price is anywhere from $180.00 to $250.00. First come, first served; there are 24 spaces available. Lids must be accessible on the day of the pumping.

Rights & Resources

The Rights and Resources issues pertaining to the First Nation are managed by a Committee of Council such as: Health and Well-being, Treaties, Education, and Culture (traditions); Water, Land, Harvesting, Fishing, Hunting, Forestry, and Environmental Issues.

The Committee was established to assist the Curve Lake First Nation Council on decisions in regards to the Rights of the Community members, as well as any decisions that entail Resources within the territory of the First Nation.
