     No. Approval of reserve status is not automatic. Both the TLE framework agreements and the federal Additions to Reserve (ATR) policy require that a step-by-step approach be taken when creating either rural or urban reserves. This process essentially begins with a First Nation submitting a proposal for the new reserve and results, if all steps in the process are successfully completed, with land(s) being added to reserve.

    The ATR process is an intensive, due diligence-based process that takes time but ensures that all affected parties are appropriately involved. Treaty Land Entitlement additions are viewed as legal obligations within the ATR policy.
