addition, we have prepared a survey (below) which we
would encourage you to complete before the end of August 2007.
EDP is being designed to facilitate the negotiation process by providing an
economic basis for the Treaty. It will identify the resources (both financial and
land-based) which are required to enable the cultural and economic survival and
prosperity of the Algonquins of Ontario.
EDP will address both economic and cultural objectives of the Algonquins of
Ontario, by possibly including:
development (e.g., capacity building, education and training initiatives, Algonquin-sensitive
health care, etc.)
initiatives designed to facilitate entrepreneurial endeavours of Algonquins and
the creation of job opportunities in the territory,
potential joint ventures, etc.;
development initiatives designed to stimulate the market for Algonquin goods and
services and to coordinate efforts in the development of the various components
of a vibrant economy;
- Cultural development initiatives to preserve and enhance Algonquin culture and language;
management programs to ensure Algonquin traditional rights are respected in the
exploitation of all natural resources within the Territory.
Algonquin Negotiation Representatives (ANR), along with the
Technical Advisory Group (TAG) and Legal Counsel are collaborating in the development of this EDP.
ANRs, with their Technical Advisory Group and the Principal Negotiator
have established ANR Working Groups to explore some of the major issues
which are being, or will be, addressed as a part of the negotiation process.
of these Working Groups is made up of selected ANRs, each of whom have certain
expertise and/or particular interests in the issues being addressed by that
group. The expected benefit of these working groups is to allow for more
in-depth consideration of these issues than would be possible at the ANR Main
survey will assist the Working Groups to gather information, examine the issues,
and make recommendations to the ANR Main Table for programs and initiatives which should be included in the EDP.
