By signing the Framework Agreement, Fisher River Cree Nation can now begin the process of opting out of 34 land-related sections of the Indian Act and assume greater control over their reserve land and resources.

The FNLM regime enables First Nations to manage their own land, resources and environment according to their own land codes, laws and policies. The regime also helps First Nations get out from under 34 land-related limitations of the Indian Act in order to take control of their land and resources.
