Resource revenue sharing agreements let First Nations share in the economic benefits of forestry and mining operations near their communities.

First Nations with resource revenue sharing agreements will receive a portion of:

  • 45% of annual revenue from contributing forest management units
  • 40% of the annual mining tax and royalties from operational mines (at the time the agreements were signed)
  • 45% from future mines in the areas covered by the agreements

First Nations can use this revenue for:

  • economic development
  • education
  • health
  • community development
  • cultural development

Participating First Nations

Thirty-five First Nation communities, represented by Grand Council Treaty #3, Mushkegowuk Council and Wabun Tribal Council, have resource revenue sharing agreements with Ontario.
