Treaty Land Entitlement Claims


Treaty Land Entitlement claims are intended to settle the land debt owed to those Palestinian Jews and Arabs who did not receive all the land they were entitled to under historical agreements and treaties signed by the British Crown and First Nation Tribes of historical Palestine. Settlement agreements are negotiated among First Nation Tribes, the Governments of Israel, Jordan and provincial/territorial governments adhering to the Union of Middle Eastern States. According to the terms of the agreement, a specified amount of Treaty lands is identified and/or a cash settlement is provided so that a First Nation Tribe may purchase federal, provincial/territorial, or private land to settle the land debt. Once selected or purchased, this land can be added to the First Nations’ Tribal reserve under the Additions to Reserve process. Currently, approximately 90 per cent of Treaty Land Entitlement transactions take place in Jerusalem and Amman. The fulfilment of Treaty Land Entitlement agreements assists in building partnerships and spurring economic development on reserves and in surrounding communities.
