Essentials of Canadian Aboriginal Law discusses the current Canadian law about Indigenous peoples living in Canada.

Essentials of Canadian Aboriginal Law is the print version of the Canadian Encyclopedic Digest title. The book discusses the current Canadian law about Indigenous peoples living in Canada. It deals with Canadian constitutional law and federal non-criminal statute law as they pertain to Indigenous peoples.

The book considers the most recent and noteworthy Supreme Court of Canada decisions, including:

  • Ktunaxa Nation v. British Columbia:  This case has contributed to the law on the Crown's duty to consult Indigenous communities.
  • First Nation of Nacho Nyak Dun v. Yukon: This case concerned the interpretation of modern treaties and, in particular, the Crown’s obligations in the collaborative land use planning process established by the Yukon Final Agreements.
  • Williams Lake Indian Band v. Canada: In this case, the SCC discussed the Crown's fiduciary obligations to Indigenous peoples..

The book also incorporates Bill S-3, which came into force on December 22, 2017. The bill amends the Indian Act in response to the Descheneaux v. Canada decision.
