National Aboriginal Lands Managers Association (NALMA)

Land Use Planning

Program Summary:

NALMA is a dynamic organization committed to providing efficient tools and resources to its members through the Regional Land Associations and Associate Members. We honour the members of each of the Associations for their hard work and dedication, which allows NALMA to undertake the many challenges that support and promote best practices in First Nation land management.

Land Use Planning – First Nations may apply to the National Aboriginal Lands Managers Association (NALMA) for funding to assist in the development of their Land Use Plans (LUP).  NALMA may provide First Nation communities with technical support and training throughout the LUP process as needed.

Your community may be eligible to receive funding for the development of a land use plan. Please note that the amount of funding approved for your land use plan will depend on eligible project activities and available budgets, while the time required to complete your plan may vary.

There are three separate funding categories you can apply for:

  • Category 1: Background Report (Pre-Planning)
  • Category 2: Land Use Plan Development, Implementation, Monitoring and Evaluation
  • Category 3: Updating an Existing Land Use Plan
