Assembly of First Nations/Assemblée des Premières Nations

The Assembly of First Nations (AFN) is a national organization that advocates on behalf of Indian bands across Canada. In 1998, a joint task force of the Assembly of First Nations and Canada recommended a model bill for a claims commission. In 2007, a new joint task force composed of officials from the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) and Canada began working together on “a legislative proposal from the Government of Canada culminating in the introduction of” the Specific Claims Tribunal Act, which came into force on October 16, 2008. After an initial delay, the Specific Claims Tribunal officially opened on June 1, 2011 and began receiving applications for the resolution of specific claims.

The following documents were prepared by the Assembly of First Nations/Assemblée des Premières Nations. They are listed according to subject and date (in some instances, approximate) of publication.
