Blakes Annual Indigenous Law Update

April 21, 2022 - 8:00 AM - 9:15 AM

Courts have once again been at the forefront of Indigenous legal issues, and boundaries are being pushed in all directions. Not only are government decisions being challenged, but private rights and future developments are also at issue. With Indigenous governments in some cases demonstrating their project support in court, a wider range of themes and outcomes is emerging.

Join us for our Annual Indigenous Law Update, where we will address the implications of recent developments for resource-based industries, infrastructure owners and other businesses. As usual, we will cover the key themes in ongoing negotiations among commercial and Indigenous parties.


  • Indigenous self-development, the regulatory process and the obligations of the Crown

  • Private rights and the potential impacts of Indigenous rights and title

  • ESG standards and Indigenous considerations

  • Cross-border Indigenous rights

  • Cumulative impacts and joint decision-making
