Modern treaties, including the treaty, are agreements between nations that include the courts in a broad and generous way. Crown honour distinguishes such contracts from international contracts or contracts between private parties and creates a fiduciary duty when the Crown takes discretionary control of a particular or recognizable Aboriginal interest. This loyalty obligation creates additional obligations of loyalty, good faith and full disclosure. In its dealings with Aboriginal peoples, the Crown must always be attentive to the honour of the Crown, be proactive and provide full disclosure of information important to Aboriginal parties.

The Tribunal also ordered that Inuit be entitled to damages.  The Labrador Inuit Land Claims Agreement (Agreement) between the Labrador Inuit Association, the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Government of Canada came into force on December 1, 2005.
