Legal Expense Insurance Program

For First Nations to pursue their legal rights and remedies in a timely manner and on a level playing field with Canada, it is essential that access to appropriate funding be made available. For that funding to be available, legitimate security issues have to be addressed, specifically assurances that if the claim is not successful the loan will still be repaid.

There are numerous benefits to obtaining a Legal Expense Insurance Policy

  • Chief and Council are no longer affected by inadequate funding by the Specific Claims Branch
  • Chief and Council now have the flexibility to select independent counsel
  • Chief and Council will have a line of credit to pay a substantial portion of the legal fees as they are being incurred which will allow for a more competitive CFA
  • Chief and Council would have the ability to obtain the best researchers, experts, reports, etc. to advance the negotiations
  • Chief and Council pay a onetime insurance premium that can be paid by the line of credit
  • Chief and Council are assured that the Legal Expense Insurance Company will not participate in the settlement of the litigation

And more importantly ensures that the claim is being pursued aggressively and on the First Nations timetable.

Environmental Cleaning Program (including Mould Remediation)

The Environmental Cleaning Program (ECP) uses an environmentally friendly disinfecting solution that works against antibiotic resistant bacteria, viruses, fungi, mould and mildew. This product is also very effective against the germs and bacteria that cause colds, flu, and other health risks. Where traditional remediation could leave a home or business closed up for weeks or even months, this patented program can take as little as a few hours. The ECP course will educate, train, and certify members of Indigenous communities in the proper techniques of environmental cleaning to kill germs, bacteria, viruses, and mould in community buildings, houses, and public use facilities.

Legal Expense Insurance
Legal Expense Insurance (LEI) gives Aboriginal peoples and communities access to legal advice and coverage for the legal costs of defending or pursuing certain legal actions, including land claims. Legal Expense Insurance is intended to cover the legal fees, research costs, expert witnesses, the conduct of a trial and appeals, and other related expenses. It will also cover the cost of insurance premiums for the policy itself, which the Aboriginal community would not normally be able to afford.
