Additions to Reserve: Improving Economic Success of Urban Additions to Reserve

Additions to Reserve are an important way for First Nations to address historic and unjust loss of reserve and treaty land, to accommodate growing populations, and to pursue strategic and economic development opportunities. With thousands of land claims currently underway across Canada, the conversion of land to reserve is an important and growing issue for First Nations.

The National Aboriginal Economic Development Board published two reports on Improving Economic Success of Urban Additions to Reserve (Part 1: Identifying Success Factors in Urban First Nations and Part 2: Achieving Benefits for First Nations and Local Governments) that examined the economic and fiscal benefits that result from investment on reserve, the factors that influence these benefits, and how these factors might be applied to Additions to Reserve to maximize the economic and fiscal benefits they generate.

A new report prepared by Prairie Research Associates, entitled Additions to Reserve: Lessons Learned from First Nations, profiles the experiences of nine First Nation communities across Canada with the Additions to Reserve Process.
