Will there be limits on our law-making abilities?

Lheidli T’enneh law-making jurisdiction is set out in the Final Agreement. In some areas Lheidli T’enneh laws will take priority over federal and provincial laws; in other specified areas, federal and provincial laws will have priority if Lheidli T’enneh laws are in conflict. In most matters Lheidli T’enneh will make laws independently, but the Lheidli T’enneh government will need to give at least six months’ written notice before it makes any law about adoption, child protection services, health services, family and social services, child care services, or education. In a limited number of other areas, including criminal law and intellectual property, we will have no law-making abilities.
