Overview

Staying abreast of developments in Indigenous law and policy is critical for legal and business professionals in many industries across Canada. To help you stay current, Osler is pleased to introduce Indigenous Law Insights, a monthly webinar series.

Available live and on-demand, each 30 minute session will provide you with an update on recent court decisions, as well as pending and new legislative and policy developments. Members of our Indigenous Law group will deliver timely and practical information about what these developments mean for your business.

In this month's webinar, Osler presenters provide an overview and implications of;

  • The recent decision by the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench, in the case of Métis Nation of Alberta Association v. Alberta, in particular the Court’s findings regarding the duty to negotiate and the scope of the honour of the Crown.
  • The recent decision by the British Columbia Supreme Court in the case of Thomas and Saik’uz First Nation v Rio Tinto Alcan Inc., in particular the Court’s findings regarding private liability for breach of Aboriginal rights and the availability of the defence of statutory authority in response to such claims.
