Treaty Land Entitlement Claims

TLE Claims

TLE claims are intended to settle land debts owed to First Nations who did not receive all the land they were promised under treaties. OKT’s lawyers have many years of experience in negotiating the resolution of TLE claims. We have assisted in successfully negotiating increases in both land base and the compensation amounts, and helped ensure membership receives the full benefit of the settlement, without clawbacks. We have also worked with industry and government to protect TLE settlement lands from other developments. Our approach is to work closely with the First Nation’s leaders and community members, to ensure the TLE process remains community-driven, and has the understanding, direction and support of membership. Please contact us if you would like to discuss how we could assist your First Nation with a TLE claim.
