Land Code Development

We VOTE on our
March 22nd, 2024 

What is the PTFN
Land Code?

The PTFN Land Code, if passed, will become the main land law of PTFN and will replace the current land management provisions of the Indian Act by returning control over our reserve lands to our community.

​The land code provides increased protection for reserve land and resources.

How does a Land Code benefit PTFN?

A Land Code can:

  • PROTECT Cultural Heritage

  • PROTECT our land base

  • INCREASE transparency

  • PROVIDE more funding opportunities

  • SUPPORT economic development

  • CREATE the opportunity for more business

  • ENFORCE land laws on reserve

Are there other Land Code Communities?

Almost 1/3 of First Nations in Canada are involved in the Land Code process.


There are currently 116 First Nations that have already passed Land Codes, while another 100 First Nations are at different stages of working to develop their own.

To hear directly from First Nation leaders from cross the country on their experience with land code, take a look at our resources page.

“This [land code] has been nothing but a positive and has strengthened our treaty rights. I still hunt, I still trap, I still fish today. That doesn’t affect it at all. If anything, it strengthens it. It just puts parameters and controls for us to ensure that we remind ourselves that we’ve got to protect our land, just as much as we tell others to do the same, whether it’s on reserve or off.”
