In 1985, by a resolution of the National Assembly, the Parliament of Québec recognized the existence of aboriginal nations within Quebec's territory. In virtue of the resolution, the National Assembly recognized:

  1. the right of the aboriginal peoples to autonomy in Québec;
  2. the right to their culture, language and traditions;
  3. the right to own and control land, the right to hunt, fish, harvest;
  4. the right to participate in the management of wildlife resources;
  5. the right to participate in the economic development of Québec and to benefit from such development.

At present, the 10 Amerindian nations and the Inuit nation, totalling some 70,000 inhabitants, account for approximately 1% of Québec's population.
