Fort William First Nation

The Issue:

The community was engaged in a negotiation with both the federal government and provincial government surrounding the largest land claim in Canada's history. Senior land claim negotiators were slowing down the process and negotiating in bad faith from the community's perspective.

The Result:

TheCCSGroup assisted Fort Williams First Nation in engaging senior political decision makers in Aboriginal Affairs Northern Development Canada. We ensured that the Minister's staff were briefed and monitoring the claim so that the First Nation could have a political advocate in the Minister's Office. The land claim settled for $170 Million (the largest claim in Canadian history) within six month's of the Minister's Office getting briefed and engaged on the file.
