If modern treaties are ratified, the Nations will need to have the ability to implement their treaty and governance structure. Implementation funding will be negotiated to allow each Nation to make that transition to Effective Date and beyond. For example, the Tsawwassen First Nation treaty agreement provided $13.5M (2009$) for start-up and transition costs. The treaty agreement with the five Maa-nulth First Nations provided $47.3M (2011$) to fund transition and implementation costs. This fund will allow the Nation to take the necessary steps to create their self-government.
