The Federal government will streamline the loan process for First Nations infrastructure and modify the Indian Act to eliminate ISC oversight to address the basic needs of Indigenous people.

Replace the text of the Indian Act: section 57(c) with the following: “ (c) providing for the disposition of surrendered mines and surrendered minerals underlying lands in a reserve;”
Repeal and replace the following sections of the Indian Act and replace them with identical text that puts the decisions for the use of Indigenous resources and land in the hands of Indigenous Chief and Council Members without requiring the consent of any Federal Ministers or other government agents: Section 18(2), 20(1), 20(2), 23, 24, 25, 51, 60, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 91, 93
