I OWN PROPERTY WITHIN AN AREA COVERED BY A SPECIFIC CLAIM THAT RELATES TO LAND. WILL MY PROPERTY BE TAKEN AWAY FROM ME TO SETTLE THE CLAIM?

No. Regardless of where your property is located, this will not happen. Private property is not on the negotiating table. The current ownership of land is not at issue when a claim is being negotiated under the Specific Claims Policy. Canada does not take away privately owned lands to settle any claims, nor are private property owners asked to sell their land unwillingly. If land changes hands after a settlement of a land claim, this can only happen on a willing-seller/willing-buyer basis.
