The Reserve Land and Environment Management Program (RLEMP) provides funding to First Nations to develop capacity to exercise increased responsibility over their reserve land, resources and environment under the Indian Act.
Participating in RLEMP can prepare a community for transition to a more comprehensive land management model, such as First Nations Land Management, or comprehensive self-government.
- First Nations
- Tribal councils
Three checklists have been developed to help First Nations and ISC meet program requirements:
There are 3 levels of responsibility under RLEMP. As First Nations progress from one level to the next, they develop the lands and environmental management capacity required to manage their reserve lands.
- Level 1: Training and development
- Level 2: Operational
- Level 3: Delegated authority (closed to new entrants since 2011)
Deadline DateThere is no deadline to apply. RLEMP accepts applications throughout the year. But there are deadlines to apply for Level 1: Professional Land Management Certification Program.
