Technical Update Matrimonial Real Property

Assembly of First Nations
TECHNICAL UPDATE
MATRIMONIAL REAL PROPERTY

February 13, 2008

The federal government announced on June 21, 2006 that it would conduct nation-wide consultations with First Nations on issues related to matrimonial real property (MRP).

Matrimonial real property is property that belongs to married couples. Matrimonial real property becomes an issue when a marriage breaks down and that property has to be divided in a fair manner. There are provincial laws that deal with this, but these laws do not apply on First Nations reserves and the Indian Act also does not address MRP issues. This means that while First Nations have traditional law and practices dealing with these matters, many First Nations communities do not have laws that are recognized by the Federal government creating what they see as a “legislative gap.”

KI Responds to Ontario’s Proposal

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 6, 2008

Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug – March 4, 2008 Minister of Aboriginal Affairs, Michael Bryant , paid a visit to our community (KI). There have been media reports today suggesting that Mr. Bryant made a proposal to settle KI’s dispute with the government on Ontario regarding mineral exploration on our territory by Platinex Inc., and that KI accepted the proposal. We wish to set the record straight.

No new proposals were made by Minister Bryant concerning the Platinex dispute and no agreement was reached. While the Minister did provide KI with a draft “Proclamation”, the Proclamation is a general statement of principles concerning future resource development in our territory. It contains no specific commitments by Ontario and makes no reference to the Platinex dispute. Indeed, in his comments to us during the meeting yesterday Mr, Bryant made it clear that Ontario remains committed to the Platinex project going ahead with Ontario’s blessing. KI remains equally committed to our position that we cannot permit mining or mineral exploration within our watershed ands that the Platinex project must not proceed.
