the words of the JBNQA, the Coordinating Committee is, "the
preferential and exclusive forum for Native people and governments
jointly to formulate regulations and supervise the administration
and management of the Hunting, Fishing and Trapping Regime."
That is to say the responsible ministers of Canada and of Québec
are required to consult the Coordinating Committee on all questions
within its mandate before making decisions or proposing new regulations
affecting the Territory.
