Workshop: Ontario First Nation Jurisdiction

This workshop presented by the Tulo Centre and the First Nations Tax Commission focuses on implementing First Nations Fiscal Management Act (FMA) taxation systems in Ontario.

A few Ontario First Nations with cottages lessees have begun to implement property taxation. There are other Ontario First Nations with cottage lessees who are interested in establishing their tax jurisdiction.

This workshop will explore some of the benefits and challenges of the Ontario First Nations who have implemented taxation. It will present a case study from the Georgina Island First Nation and discuss the experience of the Chippewas of Kettle and Stony Point First Nation. It will include a presentation from the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) and summarize the concerns from taxpayers.

This workshop will also present the proposed option for First Nation cannabis tax jurisdiction developed by the FNTC with proponent First Nations and submitted to the Senate.

This workshop could be of interest to lawyers and policy makers and First Nation leaders and administrators, especially those who have cottage lessees on their lands. It would also be of interest to anyone interested in the First Nation cannabis tax jurisdiction proposal.

Limited travel assistance available.
