Lands Management

Land Management is the day-to-day management and administration of reserve lands, environments and resources, including pipelines. Regular activities of the Lands Department include, providing the membership with information on lands, assisting members with land transactions as requested, tracking and documenting land transactions in the Indian Lands Registry System (ILRS). ILRS is a database of instruments to examine, register and maintain documents relating to interests in Indian Lands.

Types of instruments prepared are transfers, leases, assignments and addendums. The Lands Department also registers documents such as mortgages, permits and estate transactions in ILRS.

The Land Manager will also provide administrative support to the Chief & Council and Administration on lands management issues. The Lands Manager is the direct contact person internally and externally for access and other lands related documents for implementation and compliance.

As of 2004, AANDC does not cover the cost of surveys. These costs must be paid by the landowner and vary in price depending on what is required to complete the work.

In 2020 Aamjiwnaang will begin work on the Land Use Plan we have created a Facebook Page Land Use Planning Aamjiwnaang. The Land Use Plan will be created with feedback provided from our Community. The Lands Department also seeks feedback from Hunters and Fishers on the Facebook Page Aamjiwnaang Hunters we will be discussing the Hunting Berm and the creation of Safe Hunting Zones.

Aamjiwnaang First Nation lands are administered under the Reserve Lands Environmental Management Program (RLEMP).
