19. The right to harvest refers to activities relating to the exercise of that right in the Territory for personal or community use, and fishing and trapping for commercial purposes.
Personal use includes, in addition to the use for personal purposes of products of the exercise of the right to harvest, the gift, exchange and sale of such products among members of a single family.
The word “family” is used in a broad sense and means persons allied or related by blood, or by legal or customary marriage or adoption.
Community use includes the gift, exchange and sale of products of the exercise of the right to harvest consistent with practice as of 11 November 1975 between Cree, Inuit or Naskapi communities or members of one or more of such communities, whether or not they carried on such activities as of that date. In the case of Native persons living in non-Native settlements, community use is restricted to the gift, exchange and sale between themselves of products of the exercise of the right to harvest consistent with practice as of 11 November 1975, and does not include the gift and sale of such products to Cree, Inuit or Naskapi communities or exchange with such communities. Community use does not include the exchange of fish and meat with non-Natives or the sale of such products to such persons save in the case of commercial fisheries.
