AbstractOver the last few years, the options for land tenure reform for First Nations in Canada have grown substantially. Current land tenure systems include: informal registries at the community level, interests granted under the Indian Act, mimicking off-Reserve regulations to expedite commercial development, developing land codes for land management responsibility, proposed fee-simple ownership, and various land tenure arrangements under full self-government. The number of options and configurations can be daunting. This paper will provide an overview of 7 options for land tenure reform for First Nations in Canada.
