The settlement of the Hog Island Specific Claim

L’nuey is also mandated on behalf of the First Nations to lead and coordinate other negotiation processes that are not specifically related to the Framework Agreement, such as the Lennox Island and Abegweit First Nations’ Hog Island Specific Claim negotiations and the negotiations related to the proposed new national park, Pituamkek.

Specific Claims

Specific claims deal with past wrongs against First Nations. These are claims made by First Nations against the Government of Canada and relate to the administration of land and other First Nation assets and to the fulfilment of treaties and agreements. There is currently one active specific claim in negotiations in PEI (Hog Island). L’nuey is also currently engaged in research and legal review for several other potential specific claims, which will be presented to the Assembly for consideration in coming months.

Hog Island Specific Claim (Representatives at the Table: L’nuey and Specific Claims Branch of Crown Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada): Negotiations are now at the stage of independent studies to help inform the negotiation table on potential values related to the loss of use and value of the land. Both the negotiation process and the related studies were slowed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If a proposed settlement is achieved by the negotiators and that proposal is supported by the Councils, it would then be presented to the communities to seek support for implementation.
