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).
