Aboriginal law – 2016 Year in review

Stay informed with our Aboriginal law – 2016 Year in review. The report summarizes the latest developments in Aboriginal law, organized by jurisdiction. These decisions reflect the most recent guidance from Canadian courts regarding the duty to consult Indigenous peoples, including three pending Supreme Court of Canada decisions.

Knowledge of the current trends in Aboriginal law and latest judicial commentary on the scope and content of the duty to consult will help project proponents formulate best practices to avoid projects being delayed as a result of judicial challenges citing insufficient consultation.

For more information regarding the cases included in the publication and how they might affect your business operations, contact one of our regional Aboriginal law leaders.
