The Aboriginal and Treaty Rights Information System (ATRIS) is a Web-based information system intended to map out the location of Aboriginal communities and display information pertaining to their potential or established Aboriginal or treaty rights. ATRIS was designed to provide information that assists Federal Government officials and others in their duty to consult Indigenous groups.
ATRIS, and any information contained in it, is not intended to provide or constitute legal advice on section 35 rights or duty to consult, nor is it intended to replace direct communication, partnerships, or collaboration with Indigenous communities.
The content of ATRIS is a compilation of data obtained from many sources and the data is subject to change without notice. Given that ATRIS extracts information from existing sources and information systems, some information may only be available in French or English.
While we attempt to present and maintain current and accurate information in ATRIS, Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada (CIRNAC) cannot guarantee that the information is up to date due to circumstances outside its control. CIRNAC accepts no responsibility or liability for any errors, inaccuracies and/or omissions in ATRIS.
