FMA TOOLKIT: DELEGATION OPTION
The FNTC has established Standards for the Form and Content of Delegation Option Laws. You can find the standards, guides and samples on right sidebar: or below on small screens:
First Nations have the authority to make Delegation Laws under the FMA in order to delegate council’s FMA law-making powers to a person or body.
This means a First Nation could transfer its law-making powers to a third party to, for example, enable taxation on jointly-held reserves, with each community delegating their own law-making powers to one body.
A delegation could enable efficiency for smaller communities who could delegate their law-making powers and administration to a community with more staff resources.
It could also support nation-building, by enabling communities within a nation to delegate to a tribal council so taxation is implemented at the nation level.
