On July 24, 2012, the Quebec government signed an accord with the Cree that would result in the abolition of the Baie-James municipality (James Bay) and the creation of a new regional government - the Eeyou Istchee James Bay Territory (French: Gouvernement régional d'Eeyou Istchee Baie-James).[1] The agreement is designed to give the Cree expanded powers over lands and resources. The new government consist of Cree and Baie-James residents each having an equal number of votes.
