Kwanlin Dün Council passed its new, modern Lands Act, Nan kay sháwthän Däk’anúta ch’e (We all look after our land), on March 3, 2020. The Act gives Kwanlin Dün authority to manage, protect and enforce laws on settlement land and allows the government to make land available for Beneficiary and Citizen residential and traditional needs on settlement lands.
The Heritage, Lands and Resource Department’s priority is to work with Beneficiaries and Citizens who are currently living on, or have a historical submission for land. Anyone currently living on settlement land or holding a historical submission should contact the department, by calling 867-633-7800 ext. 128 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
