Temagami First Nation votes YES!

June 24th. 2017: In an outstanding show of support, members of Temagami First Nation (TFN) in Ontario ratified their community Land Code.  TFN is the 74th community to become an Operational Signatory to the Framework Agreement on First Nation Land Management.  With over 87% of participating, registered voters supporting the TFN Land Code, members of the community can take great pride in regaining governance control over their reserve lands and resources.  With a number of plans already in the works to develop their own environmental and zoning practices, streamlining additions to reserve, developing a higher standard of custom land laws (vs existing government laws), and creating economic independence for the community, the TFN Land Code will initiate a range of opportunities, with lasting positive effects, on Temagami lands for generations to come.  Congratulations Temagami!
