Self Government Survey
Self-Government and You – A Survey
Some important things to consider:
Aboriginal self-government is the formal structure through which Aboriginal communities administer to the needs of their people, the land and its resources, and related programs and policies.
Through the land claims (or comprehensive claim settlement) process, individual Aboriginal communities have achieved differing levels of self-government.
Numerous claims (Treaties and other agreements) have been negotiated with specific sections dealing with self-government and levels of co-management with other governments.
Self-government is often referred to as an “inherent” right, and existed in the form of Aboriginal occupation and government of the land before the arrival of European settlers.
There is no “one size fits all” approach to governance and self-government.
You’re being asked the following questions for one simple reason: in order to best understand your interests, your concerns, and the questions you have about Lake Babine governance, we need to know what these are.
There are no right answers or wrong answers. Your name and your survey answers are completely confidential and all the answered surveys will be combined so that nobody can be identified from their answers.
