Province and Innu Nation complete Tshash Petapen Deal
St. John's, February 17, 2010

Late last evening, Tuesday February 16, 2010, Innu Nation leaders and the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador initialed an agreement that completes outstanding issues in the Tshash Petapen (New Dawn) Agreement signed in principle  in September 2008. All provincial issues have now been resolved by both parties including Lower and Upper Churchill and Land Claims.


The last part of the process before the agreement can be submitted to the Innu people for a final vote is an agreement on Federal issues including fiscal arrangements as well as issues with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Parks Canada and the Department of National Defense.
