The Interim Land Withdrawals process allows lands to be withdrawn from development for up to 5 years while negotiations proceed towards a final agreement. Either both the surface and subsurface rights will be withdrawn or the subsurface rights only (to allow for surface development such as forestry to occur). Lands can be withdrawn if they are:

  • Used for harvesting food or for medicinal purposes,
  • Culturally and spiritually significant areas,
  • Ecologically sensitive, or
  • Important for watershed protection.


 

Once an agreement has been reached on the lands to be protected, they will be withdrawn by a Federal Order in Council under the Territorial Lands Act. No new mining claims or leases will be issued on those lands for the specified period, but any existing claims would continue to be operational.
