Incremental Treaty Agreements

Incremental Treaty Agreements (ITAs) allow First Nations and the Province to enjoy shared benefits in advance of concluding a full treaty.

An ITA is a legally binding pre-treaty agreement negotiated, under a B.C. generated process, by the Province and First Nation or First Nations at a treaty negotiation table. ITAs build trust among the parties, create incentives to reach further milestones and provide increased predictability over land and resources.
