Photo: Toronto Star, National Archives of Canada, PA 123905 32 Chapter 4 DEALING DE A LI N G WITH W ITH DIFFERENT RIGHTS Much has been made of the privileges enjoyed by the First Nations peoples under the Indian Act: tax exemptions, all sorts of special health, education and housing measures, and much more.
It is not surprising that few Aboriginal businesses have been able to develop. The Indian Act does not apply to the Inuit in any way. Moreover, the scope of the privilege conferred by the incometax exemption has been greatly exaggerated. In the majority of Amerindian communities, this exemption is taken into account in determining salaries. To what extent is this privilege really a privilege if salaries are appreciably lower as a result? Hence, we should be careful about commenting on it. Once again, we cannot isolate one component of the Indian Act without taking into account all components of the guardianship regime.
Moreover, the tone is particularly hurtful and betrays a great deal of ignorance and misunderstanding. An in-depth analysis of the Indian Act reveals that, far from constituting a regime of privileges, the Act actually constitutes a regime of Amerindian guardianship. Although, at first glance, guardianship appears to be advantageous, it has many serious drawbacks. A REGIME OF GUARDIANSHIP We saw in the previous chapter that Indians and lands reserved for Indians have fallen under the exclusive jurisdiction of the federal government since Confederation in 1867.
