The purpose of land deprivation is to protect the land of interest to Akaitcho from sale, lease or other assignment during the ongoing negotiations. This means that it is not possible to create new interests in the remote areas until an Akaitcho agreement is concluded. It also ensures that all existing interests in such land will be protected during the withdrawal period. Although, as the map shows, the removed areas are not definitive and may evolve as part of the negotiation process, the current use of the country could change once a final agreement has been reached. An agreement on interim measures was signed on 28 June 2001, providing for a pre-screening procedure allowing the ADFN to examine applications for licences, permits and land orders. An interim set-aside protocol was concluded in November 2005. On November 2, 2006, the GNWT and ADFN agreed to the temporary removal of Commissioner`s Land`s 1,034 hectares of land in the City of Yellowknife. On November 21, 2007, Canada and the ADFN agreed to the provisional withdrawal of 62,000 km2 of Crown (now territorial) land from the traditional territory claimed by the ADFN. Applicants for land use permits and water licences are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the laws and regulations governing land and water use and waste disposal in the Mackenzie Valley.
