370 New Natives Reserves in 8 months – Land claims for generations to come?

In 2001, Indian Affairs (INAC) admitted that Canada had 2,666 reserves

By September 2006, INAC had a listing of 2,974 reserves in Canada

By April 2007, that same registry had a listing of 3,344 reserves in Canada

192 of these “new” reserves are described as “sub-surface”

What’s a sub-surface reserve?

In October 2003, the Internal Directive 10-2 was circulated throughout Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC).  This directive addresses Partial Subsurface Interest Additions and it effectively became a final policy as it was added to the Land Management Manual.

  • The purpose of this directive is to address the possibility of setting apart partial interests in mines and minerals as reserve under the conditions spelled out in the Policy section


  • The issue of setting apart partial interests in mines or minerals as reserve was raised when First Nations began purchasing partial interests in mines and minerals under specific claim settlements and/or treaty land entitlements.

What does this directive mean to Canadian jobs and the Canadian Economy?

In a nutshell, this directive gives First Nations the ability to delay and interfere with the exploration of natural resources.  With a minimal investment, any First Nation can become a partial owner and according to the words of Directive 10-2, consultation and agreement must first be obtained from every part owner prior to moving forward.   

In view of the approach to “keep everything natural”, this directive fits very nicely with the long term plans of interfering with the Canadian economy.   

Where are all these reserves coming from and who lives there?
