Modern Treaty Implementation Research Project

Modern treaties are difficult to negotiate, and are just as challenging to implement. The Modern Treaty Implementation Research Project brings together researchers from across Canada who will work alongside land claim practitioners from members of the Land Claims Agreements Coalition, on a national, six-year $2.5 million SSHRC Partnership Grant that hopes to change this, undertaking research that aims to assist Indigenous governments, Indigenous communities and other policy makers to improve modern treaty implementation. The project will produce diverse and nuanced understandings of modern treaty implementation, act as a powerful and transformative basis for critiquing and innovating treaty implementation approaches, and ensure Canada fulfills its obligations.
