On Tuesday, April 30th, Osler Associates Marleigh Dick and Ankita Gupta shared their insights on the following cases:

  • Dickson v. Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation, 2024 SCC 10, where the Supreme Court of Canada interpreted the relationship between individual Charter rights and freedoms and collective Indigenous rights protected in the Canadian Constitution.
  • Metis Settlements General Council v. Canada (Crown-Indigenous Relations), 2024 FC 487, where the Federal Court quashed provisions of a self-governing agreement between Canada and the Métis Nation of Alberta that recognized the Métis Nation of Alberta as the exclusive representative of the Métis Nation within Alberta on the basis that Canada breached its duty to consult.
