Indian Claims Commission / Commission des revendications des Indiens

E-mail Print

After the Oka crisis in 1990, the government of Canada created the Indian Claims Commission, whose mandate was to conduct inquiries into specific claims and make recommendations. It had no power, however, to make legally binding decisions. While a number of inquiries and reports did contribute to the settlement of specific claims, other reports were not adopted by Canada. In keeping with an Order in Council dated November 22, 2007, the Commission ceased operations on March 31, 2009, after the creation of the Specific Claims Tribunal in October clomid online 2008.


Below is a compilation of the reports and proceedings published by the ICC, from 1994 to its final year in 2009. The ICC has developed a Key Word Index as a research tool in accessing the information contained within its reports.  The Index categorizes the reports according to broad concepts, such as fiduciary duty, as well as geographical location. 

The ICC published both annual reports and records of its proceedings (ICCP). The Annual Reports provide a broad overview of the work the Commission has done throughout the year, while the ICCPs provide a detailed record of the specific cases the Commission dealt with.

 

The following ICC / CRI documents are listed according to date (in some instances, approximate) of publication.
