Duty to Consult Indigenous Peoples: How has the Landscape Changed? A discussion on the impact of the Supreme Court of Canada's recent Clyde River and Chippewas decisions
In the wake of two recent Supreme Court of Canada decisions affecting the duty to consult Indigenous peoples, businesses are looking for clarity. What practical impacts do these decisions have on doing business on or near Indigenous territories? Has the duty to consult been taken to a new and more challenging level? Or does the National Energy Board process now effectively mean that no additional consultation is required? Where does this leave Indigenous people in terms of their rights and relationship with the Crown and the NEB?
These are the questions that will be addressed by an expert panel assembled by The School of Public Policy. Join us for this exclusive event that is a must-attend for anyone who does business that requires consultation, or for Indigenous consultation staff interested in the impacts of these decisions on their dealings with business.
