A Final Agreement is stage five of the six-stage BC Treaty Commission process. It is the stage at which the three parties work out the technical and legal issues in the Agreement-in-Principle to produce a Final Agreement, or treaty. The Final Agreement will formalize the New Relationship between the parties. Once ratified by the First Nation members, the B.C. Legislature and the Canadian Parliament and Senate, the Final Agreement is passed into law and becomes a treaty on the agreed upon effective date.
