The land-use plans were started in the nineties, and it's the province that pretty much had the lead role in developing these plans.
The one I am familiar with is for my ancestral lands area. It's called the Missinipi integrated land use plan. My first nation, the Lac La Ronge Indian Band, participated in this land-use plan. It covers 3.9 million hectares of territory—12,045 square miles. It's a huge area.
The land-use plan is a strategic government and first nations document that identifies lands and resource management issues. It's a road map that sets the direction for present and future management, use, and development of a major part of the ancestral lands. That process is still there.
For the process in the Missinipi, you had regional meetings; you had local advisory meetings. When the land use was planned, an elders gathering was held and the land-use plan was provided by translation to the elders.
The whole process took somewhere like 10 years; it was a 10-year process. It's not a one-year process to develop a land-use plan. To this date, that I'm aware of, it hasn't really passed and gone into legislation.
I am also aware that there are other land-use plans in our neighbouring first nations that were done and have been passed into legislation. In my opinion, those other land-use plans were done very quickly.
I hope that answers your question.
