The present Agreement is a political or policy document between the Government of Canada, Government of Yukon and Yukon First Nations as represented by the Council of Yukon First Nations (CYFN). This Agreement is a common template for negotiating First Nation Final Agreements. It is important to note that the Umbrella Final Agreement, on its own, is not a legally enforceable document. Because all of its provisions are contained in each First Nation Final Agreement, those provisions have lawful effect.The text consists of 28 chapters of which the most important are: Reserves and land (4); Expropriation (7); Surface Rights Board (8); Special Management Areas (10); Land use planning (11); Heritage (13); Water Management (14); Fish and Wildlife (16); Forest resources (17);Yukon Fish and Wildlife Enhancement Trust (27).

A land of vast distances and rich natural resources, Canada became a self-governing dominion in 1867, while retaining ties to the British crown. Economically and technologically, the nation has developed in parallel with the US, its neighbor to the south across the world's longest international border. Canada faces the political challenges of meeting public demands for quality improvements in health care, education, social services, and economic competitiveness, as well as responding to the particular concerns of predominantly francophone Quebec.
