What happens next?
There is a 5-day period for objections under Section 23 of the Community Ratification Process. The Verifier will rule on any objections within a 15-day period. If there are no objections or objections are dismissed, the Verifier will provide his report for the vote and certify the Land Code. The Individual Agreement will be signed by MCN and INAC and the Land Code comes into effect on the 1st of the month following the signing. Once the Land Code is in effect then MCN begins the process of developing its own laws for reserve land management.
