Reserved lands held by the Crown for the use and benefit of native people.
The rights and freedoms of Canada's First Nations people have been governed by the Indian Act since its enactment in 1876 by the Parliament of Canada. The provisions of Section 91(24) of the Constitution Act, 1867, provided Canada's federal government exclusive authority to legislate in relation to "Indians and Lands Reserved for Indians".
Indian reserves are the areas set aside for First Nations people after contact with the Canadian state ("the Crown"), and are not to be confused with land claims areas, which involves all of that First Nations' traditional lands: a much larger territory than any reserve.
In finance, negative amortization (also known as NegAm, deferred interest or graduated payment mortgage) occurs whenever the loan payment for any period is less than the interest charged over that period so that the outstanding balance of the loan increases. As an amortization method the shorted amount (difference between interest and repayment) is then added to the total amount owed to the lender. Such a practice would have to be agreed upon before shorting the payment so as to avoid default on payment. This method is generally used in an introductory period before loan payments exceed interest and the loan becomes self-amortizing. The term is most often used for mortgage loans; corporate loans with negative amortization are called PIK loans.

There's little doubt that Canadians are on the move. Whether moving from an apartment to a house, apartment to apartment or home to home, moving is no simple matter. With careful planning, however, your transition can be facilitated in an organized and efficient manner, allowing you the peace of mind you need to settle into your home.
Get organized and start planning your move at least two months in advance.
Prior to moving organize your belongings and get rid of all items you no longer use.
Properly dispose all items that cannot be moved, such as flammable liquids.
Return any borrowed items (including library books) and retrieve any loaned items.
One day prior to moving day, disconnect and prepare major appliances for move.
Separately pack all important documents; take them with you to be safe, easily accessible and easy to find.
If you have small kids or a pet that could be traumatized by a move, arrange to have them stay somewhere during moving day.
Label all your packed boxes accurately and clearly (preferably on all sides not on the top), so you can easily find what you need in a stack.
If you've made some new purchases, such as new furniture or appliances, schedule the delivery prior or after moving day to avoid any congestion between delivery people and the movers.
