Comments ranged from general comments on The relationship between the Crown and Aboriginal people to the technical details in the contractual clauses. Below is a summary of the main themes articulated by First Nations representatives and categorized by worksheet theme. The service contract contains specific compliance and protection conditions, including the quality of services and the safety of customers seeking these services. The Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Education and Training and the Adult Community and Further Education Board uses the service agreement to fund organizations providing direct support and other services to the community. The Comprehensive Funding Agreement is the new model of the agreement for transfers to indigenous communities, which will be available in 2019/20 and beyond. It was designed to replace several older models of agreements among the former „Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada“ and „First Nations and Inuit Health Branch“ and to provide consistent agreement models for Indigenous Canada (ISC) and Crown-Indigenous And Northern Affairs Canada (CIRNAC). The development of a new financing agreement model was also stimulated by work to create a new tax relationship and the need to provide a model for the new 10-year tax relationship. The draft comprehensive funding agreement contained a clause stipulating that Aboriginal community departments should provide all information available to the public. Participants were asked about the funds currently available to obtain information in Canada as part of a funding agreement and were asked about ways to improve access to publicly available information through funding agreements.

Some participants asked Canada to help First Nations pay for the legal costs associated with the transition to the new model of agreement.

Applicants must indicate whether the project has the effect of providing services in both official languages and determining the impact the project may have on official language communities in minority situations. Recipients who receive funding must respect the spirit and intent of the Canada Official Languages Act when providing services to the public under a funding agreement. The Government of Canada is committed to working with First Nations to establish a new tax relationship that will lead to adequate, predictable and sustainable funding for First Nation communities.
