Treaty Governance


Treaty Governance


Our vision is that we will live on the land, as we have always, where our Peoples will be self-determining and economically independent, where we will walk in health and happiness with strength, unity, balance and according to our oral traditions as sovereign Nations, as bestowed by the Creator and as affirmed by Treaty.

Our mission in fulfilling our Treaty is that our governments and institutions will serve and benefit every citizen of every First Nation in a fair and just manner, based on our distinct culture, laws and customs, according to the Spirit and Intent of Treaty.

The FSIN Treaty Governance is mandated by Chiefs-in-Assembly to implement the Treaty relationship, based on the FSIN’s Treaty Implementation Principles through its participation at the Treaty Table and work with the Office of the Treaty Commissioner.

The Chief of the FSIN holds the portfolio of the Treaty Governance Office (TGO) with assistance and direction from the Chiefs Advisory Committee and FSIN Legislative Assembly. TGO is responsible for ensuring the preservation of the historic treaties, facilitating self-government and inherent rights discussions, coordination of intergovernmental agreements and supporting nation-building in First Nations.
