Title or working title of the regulatory initiative

Regulations Amending the First Nations Taxation Enforcement Regulations

Enabling act(s)

First Nations Fiscal Management Act

Description

The proposed amendments to the First Nations Taxation Enforcement Regulations will implement certain efficiencies to support First Nations property taxation under the First Nations Fiscal Management Act as well as allow for greater alignment between First Nations property taxation enforcement regimes and provincial property taxation in the province where they are located.

Regulatory cooperation efforts (domestic and international)

The department will work with the First Nations Finance Authority, the First Nations Financial Management Board and the First Nations Tax Commission on the content of the proposed amendments.

Potential impacts on Canadians, including businesses

First Nations which have opted into and are currently taxing under the First Nations Fiscal Management Act and ratepayers, including businesses, in these communities may be impacted by the proposed amendments.

Consultations

The First Nations Tax Commission will engage with stakeholders to inform them of the development of the proposed changes to the Regulations. The department will collaborate with the First Nations Finance Authority, the First Nations Financial Management Board, and the First Nations Tax Commission on the content and form of the proposed amendments. Consultations began in 2021 with the First Nations fiscal institutions. Broader engagement during the 2022-2024 period will occur once a consultation draft is available for discussion.
