Treaties and Comprehensive Land Claims in Canada

Note: These maps were published by the Government of Canada in 2004. They may be out of date now. Please use discretion - for informational purposes only. 

This Canadian map is intended to geographically illustrate Indian treaties and comprehensive land claims including settlement areas, traditional territories and those areas currently under negotiations. Comprehensive land claims are based on the assertion of continuing Aboriginal rights and claims to land that have not been dealt with by treaty or other means. Comprehensive land claims negotiations address concerns raised by Aboriginal people, governments and third parties in Canada about who has the legal right to own or use the lands and resources in areas under claim.

The map illustrates the areas and names of historical treaties, traditional territories, settlement areas and land claims in Canada. The land claims are colour shaded to differentiate between settled claim areas and unsettled claim areas currently under negotiations. Where map space was insufficient, side text boxes were incorporated to display full names. Base map information also includes National Parks, provincial, territorial and international boundaries, major roads and towns and capital cities.
