Created in 1996, the Lesser Slave Lake Indian Regional Council – Treaty Aboriginal Rights Research (LSLIRC-TARR) Program provides historical Specific Claims research services to the TARR client nations.
The primary function of the TARR Program is to provide Specific Claims research to the TARR client nations. However, as a result of conducting research over the past 15 years, the program has expanded to include an Archive, accredited with the Alberta Archives Association, which now services the communities of the Lesser Slave Lake area.
If you represent a First Nation and are interested in becoming a member of the LSLIRC-TARR program to obtain Specific Claims research and writing services, please contact Jamie Tromp for more information.
LSLIRC-TARR program would like to thank the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) for its financial support through the 2014 Community Investment Program (CIP) to enable the TARR Program to create the LSLIRC-TARR Research and Archive Portal.
The TARR program is one of 29 organizations to receive funding in the first edition of CIP, chosen from among 149 applicants. We would like to thank CIRA for recognizing how important our project is to providing an online tool of centralized local resources to benefit First Nations communities in Alberta, and especially our rural community members.
The Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) manages the .CA top-level domain, Canada’s online identifier, on behalf of all Canadians. A Member-driven organization, CIRA also facilitates the development of a better Internet for all Canadians, and represents the .CA registry internationally.
