7th Annual Forum on Aboriginal Law, Consultation & Accommodation
Organization: The Canadian Institute
|Event Date/Time: Feb 20, 2013||End Date/Time: Feb 21, 2013|
With recent developments across the country on who has the duty to consult and what that duty consists of, staying up-to-date on Aboriginal law changes is a vital business need for industry, government and Aboriginal communities. The ultimate success of a project in which Aboriginal communities are potentially impacted, will often directly depend on the success of the consultation process. And the costs of inadequate consultation — unending delays, litigation and negotiation breakdowns — can slow things down to a grinding halt.
Attend The Canadian Institute’s 7th Annual Forum on Aboriginal Law, Consultation and Accommodation and gain practical, first-hand insights from stakeholders involved in cutting edge projects. You will hear from a faculty of experts, including top government officials, industry executives, including counsel for Aboriginal communities, and top lawyers, on what you need to know to achieve a successful consultation process.
We asked you what you needed to know, and in response developed our program to address your critical challenges and concerns. Get answers to your most pressing questions including:
- When can the duty to consult be delegated to proponents? Clarifying the latest case law
- How will Ontario’s new Mining Act regulations impact your consultations?
- What is the state of the law with respect to municipalities’ duty to consult?
- What changes do you need to make to your consultation protocols in light of the increasing recognition of Métis rights across the country?
- How are recent developments impacting federal and provincial Crown coordination? What you need to know now about Keewatin v. Minister of Natural Resources and the new environmental assessment regime
Do not miss this opportunity to gain diverse perspectives directly from key stakeholders in Aboriginal consultations!
