“After ten years of negotiations, the Government of Canada and the Inuvialuit signed the Inuvialuit Final Agreement (IFA) June 5, 1984. It was the first comprehensive land claim agreement signed north of the 60th parallel and only the second in Canada at that time.
In the IFA, Inuvialuit agreed to give up their exclusive use of their ancestral lands in exchange for certain other guaranteed rights from the Government of Canada. The rights came in three forms: land, wildlife management and money.”
