Version of section 7.1 from 2012-06-29 to 2018-12-12:

Marginal note:Exclusion — boundaries of reserve uncertain

  •  (1) Despite subsection 6(1), land may be excluded from the application of a land code if it is uncertain whether the land is located within the boundaries of the reserve.

  • Marginal note:Land subject to lease, other interest or right

    (2) If the exclusion of the land would have the effect of placing the administration of a lease, other interest or a right in that land in more than one land management regime, then all the land that is subject to that lease, other interest or right shall be excluded from the application of the land code.

  • Marginal note:Limitation — effects of exclusion

    (3) The exclusion of the land does not preclude the First Nation or Her Majesty from asserting in an action, a lawsuit or other proceeding that the land is part of the reserve.
