Land, resources and self-government agreements combine land claim and self-government into a single agreement. These agreements describe Aboriginal and Treaty rights in relation to land, resources and self-government. In addition to bringing clarity to Aboriginal ownership of land and resources, these agreements define the jurisdictions, authorities and responsibilities of Aboriginal governments.
Stand-alone self-government agreements can also be negotiated independent of land and resources, usually after the completion of a land and resources agreement.
