The basic goals of the present Agreement - made under section 35 of the Constitution of Canada - are to: 1) preserve Inuvialuit cultural identity and values within a changing northern society; 2) enable Inuvialuit to be equal and meaningful participants in the northern and national economy and society; 3) protect and preserve the Arctic wildlife, environment and biological productivity. In the Agreement, the Inuvialuit agree to give up their exclusive use of their ancestral lands in exchange for certain other guaranteed rights from the Government of Canada. The rights come in three forms: land, wildlife management and money. The Inuvialuit have legal control over their land with subsurface rights to oil, gas and minerals. Furthermore, the Inuvialuit establish the right to hunt and harvest anywhere in the claim area, particularly as primary harvesters on certain lands known to be rich in wildlife. They also secure the responsibility for ensuring good wildlife management, becoming part of a wildlife management team with the government. The Agreement is based on sustainable development.The Agreement also enables the establishment of a system of joint management, involving the Inuvialuit and the territorial and federal levels of government. This eco-management process is considered to be a world-class example of integrated resource management consisting of: 1) Wildlife Management Advisory Council (NWT); 2) Wildlife Management Advisory Council (North Slope); 3) Fisheries Joint Management Committee; 4) Environmental Impact Screening Committee; 5) Environmental Impact Review Board.
