Aboriginal law, defined as Euro-Canadian law about Indigenous people and their rights, has an increasing influence on the decisions of government, natural-resource based industry, and those involved in environmental management and assessment.
Our firm advises provincial and municipal governments, and large-scale resource users and managers concerning the impact of Indigenous and treaty rights. We have dealt with the effects of Aboriginal law on land claims, constitutional matters, land use conflicts, mitigation/compensation agreements, and resource management planning. We have provided advice to clients regarding on-reserve business financing. We have also assisted First Nation governments with specific land claims and internal governance matters.
