Essentials of Canadian Aboriginal Law

Availability: In Stock

Essentials of Canadian Aboriginal Law is the print version of the Canadian Encyclopedic Digest title. The book discusses the current Canadian law about Indigenous people living in Canada. 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 Crowns 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 people

The book deals with Canadian constitutional law and federal non-criminal statute law as they pertain to Indigenous people. It 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.
