Jbnqa Agreement

This foundation has resulted in other important agreements, including the Sanarrutik Partnership Agreement and the Peace of the Brave, both massive economic development agreements that make Inuit and Cree partners in decision-making and benefit-sharing. However, more than thirty amendment agreements, ancillary agreements and relevant laws illustrate the complexity and dynamics of the agreement. In 1984, the Canadian Parliament kept its promise of Aboriginal autonomy and passed the Cree-Naskapi (Quebec) Act, the first of its kind at the national level (see Aboriginal Autonomy in Canada). The Naskapi joined the JBNQA in 1978 by signing the Northeastern Québec subsidiary agreement. The James Bay and Northern Quebec Accord (“JBNQA”) is a pioneering agreement and the first modern agreement with an Aboriginal group in Canada. The JBNQA was appointed on November 11, 27, 1975, between the Grand Conseil des Crees (de Québec), the Association des Inuits du Nord du Québec, the Government of Quebec, the Société d`énergie de la Baie James, the Société de développement de la Baie James, the Commission hydroélec de Québec (Hydro Québec) and the Government of Canada. The James Bay and Northern Quebec Accord (JBNQA) is a legally valid agreement signed on November 11, 1975 by the Government of Quebec, the Government of Canada, Hydro-Québec and two of its subsidiaries, the Grand Conseil des Crees du Québec and the Northern Québec Inuit Association. . . .
