Tle Trust Agreement

For more information about the Peguis TLE Trust, please see: Each year, the Trust holds a general meeting at which the administration, investment advisors and directors declare to the recipient the status of funds, activities and applications accepted from the Trust. The report of the general meeting for the current year is available at the TLE Trust office in Peguis. The agreement settled outstanding land promises which, for various reasons, were not met under Treaty No. 1 of August 3, 1871. Under the TLE settlement agreement, Peguis has the right to select and acquire up to 166,794 additional hectares in reserve. To make this possible, Canada agreed to pay Peguis $64,425,000 $US. In 2008, USD 61,397,215 was deposited with the Peguis First Nation Trust, of which USD 56,397,215 was transferred to the implementation account and $5,000,000 to the Community Fund. As mentioned above, our primary mission is to ensure that Peguis First Nation meets its AME obligations and obligations. The AME is a legal agreement with Canada and Manitoba, and the provisions in it are therefore maintained until the end of implementation. These responsibilities and commitments are set out in AME 28.04 and are worded as follows: Peguis First Nation Treaty Land Entitlement Trust was created as part of an agreement signed on May 12, 2008 with Canada and the Province of Manitoba.

The beneficiaries of the trust are the First Nation and its members. The trust is made up of two groups of agents: the financial administrators and administrators of the Community Fund, the administrative staff and an enforcement office. The Peguis First Nation TLE Implementation Unit will lead and manage the implementation of the Peguis First Nation Treaty Entitlement Agreement (TEA). Our main mission is to ensure the successful purchase and choice of up to 166,794 hectares of land and to ensure that it is converted into a reserve. Here is a brief summary of the tasks of our unit: The Red River Valley region, particularly the immediate northern region of Selkirk, Manitoba, known as St. Peter`s Parish, was colonized by the Aborigines long before the arrival of European immigrants. It is a thriving fishing and farming community that has attracted various ecclesiastical missions and other immigrants. Chief Peguis had long recognized the authority to officially assign land to members and others, a practice that was confirmed and accepted by the Hudson`s Bay Company. This authority and practice was pursued by Chief Peguis` son, Chief Henry Prince, and existed at the time of the first contract.

Pegui`s “deeds,” as they were called, were distributed, sold and traded among the settlers, including Indians, Métis and non-Aboriginals. However, the majority of the residents were members of the Peguis Band. (c) the rebate was merely a campaign grant, i.e. the Reserve of Peguis was received, among other things, in exchange for the St. Peter`s Reserve under the terms of the surrender document itself; Finally, regardless of the amount of land that was actually obtained as a reserve under the treaty, the First Nation asserts that its right to reserve land is calculated from time to time on the basis of the First Nation`s current population, as its land needs increase with population growth. Treaty 1 First Nations have again been expressly assured by treaty commissioners that land will be made available to future generations.
