A mineral lease is required for disposal or sale of minerals or of a gross value of more than $100,000 in one year.

The Inuit Regions, also known as the Inuit Nunangat, dataset contains the geographical boundaries of the 4 Inuit Regions in Canada: Inuvialuit, Nunavut, Nunavik and Nunatsiavut. The boundaries, land only, have been drawn as per information defined in each land claim agreement. The marine boundaries of the 4 Inuit Regions will soon be available. The Inuit Regions (Inuit Nunangat) geographical boundaries are approximate and should be used for illustration purposes only.
The Modern Treaties (formerly known as Post-1975 Treaties) dataset contains the geographic boundaries as well as basic attributes data of all signed agreements that were negotiated after 1975. These boundaries represent the areas of Canada where Aboriginal land rights and title have not been addressed by treaty or through other legal means. These boundaries represent the final result of a negotiated First Nation’s claimed area. These boundaries are usually not surveyed but help to delineate the geographic extent of the rights of Aboriginal beneficiaries defined within the agreement.

The Targeted Investments in First Nations Community Infrastructure dataset depicts infrastructure projects on reserves across Canada that are funded through Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) and Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada (CIRNAC) programs. It contains data related to project location, category, description and status.
The dataset allows the Department to pinpoint and share information about individual infrastructure projects in First Nation communities, in a proactive and transparent manner, to:
• Showcase where and how investments are carried out in First Nation communities
• Demonstrate the Government’s commitment to improve the socio-economic conditions of Indigenous peoples and their communities.

The Aboriginal Agreements dataset contains the geographic boundaries as well as basic attributes data of arrangements between the government of Canada, provinces and territories, and Indigenous organizations and communities. These arrangements are of Indigenous and Northern issues such as education, economic development, child and family services, health, and housing. However, this dataset only contains the Aboriginal Agreements that have a geographic boundary.

The Historic Treaties (formerly known as Pre-1975 Treaties dataset contains the geographic boundaries as well as basic attributes data of all signed agreements that were negotiated between 1725 and 1929. However, the Anglo-Huron Treaty (Murray Treaty), which is part of the Treaties of Peace and Neutrality, is not represented in this dataset because it has no geographic boundary. These boundaries represent the large areas of land that the First Nations gave up to the Crown in exchange for such things as reserve lands, benefits or promises. These boundaries are usually not surveyed but help to delineate the broad area defined within the treaty.
