Determine whether you live on Indigenous government lands

If you are a resident of British Columbia, Newfoundland and Labrador, the Northwest Territories, or Yukon, you are required to indicate on your tax return whether or not you live on Indigenous government lands. This area of the tax return is called Residency Information for tax administration agreements, and contains one or more questions depending on where you reside.
