Substantive Series: The Supreme Court of Canada Decision on Aboriginal Title: Practical Implications Arising from Tsilhqot'in
Join Bennett Jones and our panel of expert speakers:
for a BJA substantive series course which will focus on:
- What types of Crown land will be especially targeted by future Aboriginal title cases?
- How can First Nations consent to non-Aboriginal use of proven Aboriginal title lands? What is necessary to ensure that consent provides certainty needed for resource projects?
- Will the regulation of projects on First Nation-owned lands be significantly different than current regimes governing Crown land?
- Short of proving Aboriginal title lands, how are First Nations leveraging the Tsilhqot'in decision?
- What about lands covered by Treaty 'land surrender' clauses – how is the decision relevant?
- How are governments shaping their policy and legal responses to Tsilhqot'in?
- What should governments do?.
This event is also being offered as a ON24 webinar.
