In Canada, over 25% of First Nations have property tax powers and are responding to community needs and providing local services to thousands of property taxpayers. The First Nations Tax Commission (FNTC) is a shared-governance First Nation public institution that supports First Nation taxation under the First Nations Fiscal Management Act and under section 83 of the Indian Act.

The purpose of the FNTC goes far beyond property tax and local revenues. The FNTC is also about creating the legal, administrative and infrastructural framework necessary for markets to work on First Nation lands, creating a competitive First Nation investment climate, and using economic growth as the catalyst for greater First Nation self-reliance.

The FNTC ensures the First Nations tax system is operating efficiently, is well coordinated, improves economic growth for First Nations, and is responsive to on-reserve taxpayers. We assist First Nations in creating laws and by-laws, as well as provide training and dispute resolution services.

We encourage you to explore the website and learn more about how First Nation property taxation is transforming First Nation economies.

Thanks again for visiting.

C.T. (Manny) Jules, Chief Commissioner, FNTC
