Negotiations resumed in the late 1980s and culminated in 1990 with the final umbrella agreement (UFA). The UFA serves as a framework or presentation of individual agreements with each of yukon`s 14 federally recognized First Nations. It was signed in 1993 and the four First Nations ratified their focal claim agreements in 1995.

To date (January 2016), eleven of the 14 First Nations have signed and ratified an agreement. Currently, white River First Nation, Liard First Nation and Ross River Dena Council are not negotiating. They remain Indian groups under the Federal Indian Act.

This is the general “Umbrella” agreement of the Yukon Landclaims package and provides for the general agreement reached by the three parties in a number of areas.

These include the country (Chapter 9), compensation (Chapter 19), administrative autonomy (Chapter 24) and the creation of boards of directors and committees and tribunals to ensure the joint management of a number of specific areas (specific chapters).
