Statement by the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development on legislative jurisdiction in relation to Indians / Jean Chrétien.: R5-689/1969E-PDF
"Head 24 of Section 91 of the constitution of Canada gives to the Parliament of Canada exclusive legislative authority in relation to "Indians and Lands reserved for the Indians". This exclusive legislative authority carries with it by necessary implication the exclusive right to determine the special policies, if any, that are to prevail in relation to these citizens of Canada. Moreover it follows from the exclusive character of this legislative authority and right that the legislatures of the provinces of Canada cannot and do not have authority to legislate in relation to "Indians and Lands reserved for the Indians" or to determine Indian policy"--p. .
