  • Marginal note:Idem

    (2) A surrender of an interest in respect of entitlement land pursuant to subsection (1) takes effect on the day the entitlement land is set apart as an entitlement reserve and the surrender is deemed to confer the rights that are necessary to enable Her Majesty in right of Canada to carry out the terms of the surrender.
