The Pre-1975 Treaties (Historic 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.
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 Aboriginal organizations and communities.

A tribal council is a grouping of First Nations with common interests who voluntarily joined together to provide services to member First Nations. The tribal council geographic location dataset contains the geographic location of all tribal councils in Canada as points as well as basic attributes data. Each tribal council point represents its address as it is registered in Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) Indian Government Support System (IGSS). A connection with the IGSS is in place to ensure that any update to the system is reflected in the attributes data associated with the geography of each tribal council.

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 dataset contains the extents of mineral claims of Nunavut. A mineral claim is an area of Crown Land that is staked out by an individual or Mineral Exploration Company that holds a valid Prospectors license. This grants the individual or mineral exploration company the mineral rights to the staked out piece of land as provided for under the Nunavut Mining Regulations, SOR/214-69. If the holder of a mineral claim wishes to produce minerals from the claim, or to hold it for more than ten years, the holder must apply for a lease of the claim.
The dataset contains the extents of mineral leases of Nunavut. A mineral lease is a mineral claim that has been surveyed by a Canada Lands Surveyor. A mineral lease can be applied for after an exploration Prospecting company has done a minimum of representation work in the claim area and if a legal survey on the claim has been recorded. A mineral lease is required for disposal or sale of minerals or of a gross value of more than $100,000 in one year.
