Indigenous legal issues, government policies and business-to-First Nation agreements are rapidly evolving across Canada, affecting a wide array of resource-based industries and infrastructure and other businesses. Our Annual Indigenous Law Update will address the provincial and federal implementation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) and other federal and provincial policy developments.
As always, we will cover the key impacts arising from court decisions over the past year and themes in ongoing negotiations among commercial and Indigenous parties. We look forward to a lively discussion.
Challenges and opportunities in the provincial and federal implementation of UNDRIP
Defining, reaching and maintaining consent for resource development in Indigenous territories
The intersection between Indigenous legal issues and environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues
Recent federal and provincial policy and legislative updates
Key court decisions from 2020-2021
