With the Supreme Court of Canada's 1997 seminal decision in Delgamuukw v. British Columbia, the complexity, nature and substance of Canadian jurisprudence on Aboriginal law continues to rapidly evolve. This text analyzes the major legal developments since Delgamuukw and provides practical guidance for those who work in this quickly changing legal landscape. Under the editorial direction of Maria Morellato, Q.C., leading practitioners and academics from across Canada provide insightful and authoritative comment in four critical areas:

  • Foundational Legal Principles and Outstanding Issues: The Path Before Us
  • Addressing Aboriginal and Métis Rights on the Ground: Legal and Pragmatic Considerations
  • Aboriginal Governance: Legal Rights and Customary Law
  • Treaty-Making and Specific Claims
