Lands Management

Land Management is the day-to-day management and administration of reserve lands, environments and resources. 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.

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