Chapter 24 of the JBNQA provides for the establishment of a special Hunting, Fishing and Trapping Regime for the territory covered by the Agreements (JBNQA and NEQA). In accordance with the regime, members of the signatory native peoples (" the beneficiaries " of the Agreements) are recognized as having certain rights with regard to exploitation of wildlife in the Territory. Chapter 24 also establishes a special Outfitting Regime for the Territory. The Coordinating Committee has been given the responsibility to review, manage, and in certain cases, supervise and regulate the regimes. It also participates with the responsible minister of Canada or Québec in the management of wildlife species in the Territory, either through decisional or consultative recommendations as called for in each case.
