This is a summary of two cases that were decided at the same time by the Supreme Court and have identical reasoning: Clyde River (Hamlet) v Petroleum Geo-Services Inc. SCC 2017 &
Chippewas of the Thames First Nation v Enbridge Pipelines Inc. SCC 2017
This is a summary of Neskonlith Indian Band v. Salmon Arm (City), 2012 BCCA 379. The significance of this case is that it lays out the barriers to placing the duty to consult on municipalities. Note that while this case declared that municipalities in BC have no duty to consult with First Nations, much of the reasoning that brings the court to this conclusion has been overturned by higher court rulings at the Supreme Court of Canada. For this reason, it is likely that this decision will be overturned and a duty to consult will be placed on municipalities in the future.
This is a case summary of Haida Nation v. British Columbia (Minister of Forests)
2004 SCC 73. This case is one of the most significant Aboriginal law cases in Canada because it sets the guidelines for when to consult and accommodate with First Nations, as well as declares that the responsibility to consult lies solely with the Provincial and Federal governments.
This is a case summary of Tsilhqotâin Nation v. British Columbia 2014 SCC 44. This case is the first and, so far, only instance of a court in Canada granting aboriginal title. The legal significance of this case is that it lays out clearly what the test is that a First Nation must meet to gain title to their land.
This document is intended to provide clients with contextual information to help understand our various roles in pursuing the national goal of reconciliation with Indigenous peoples.

justice system to learn about Indigenous cultures and understand the interplay between
Indigenous legal orders and the Canadian legal system.
This report captures the recommendations of the Indigenous Planning Perspectives Task Force to provide guidance to the Council (governing body) regarding advancement of the following:
Better understanding of Indigenous perspectives on planning and the Truth and Reconciliation Commissionâs Calls to Action;
How OPPI as a âregulatorâ can strengthen its institutional frameworks so the practice of professional planning more effectively acknowledges and supports Indigenous planning
approaches and perspectives; and How OPPI as a âmember service providerâ can support its members to work collaboratively with Indigenous communities and individuals.
This paper examines the origins and evolution through the courts of the duty to consult. It first provides background information on the duty to consult. It then discusses, at a more practical level, who is involved in consultations, how and when the duty is engaged, the scope and requirements of consultation and accommodation and the circumstances in which consent is required. It further examines whether the duty to consult applies in the context of legislative processes. .It concludes by providing information and guidelines that have been developed and updated by Indigenous communities and organizations and federal/provincial governments in response to emerging case law and that inform the implementation of the duty to consult.
This is the third and last short discussion paper on major policy areas being considered in
Part Two of the Ipperwash Inquiry. This paper discusses several issues concerning
Treaty and Aboriginal rights.
The intent of this brochure is to outline the general history of the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation from the time before contact with Europeans in the early 1600s to the time of settlement in themid-1800s, onto the present Mississaugas of the New Credit Reserve in southern Ontario. The contents of this brochure provide information on the historical way of life of ancestors of the Mississaugas of the New Credit from the 1600s to the 1800s.
This Protocol sets out Alderville First Nation's (AFN) rules, under its laws and its understanding of respectful application of Canadian law, for the process and principles for consultation and accommodation between AFN, the Crown and Proponents, about any Activity that is proposed to occur in AFN's Traditional Territory and/or Treaty Territory or that might cause an Impact to the Environment or Health therein or AFN Rights. AFN expects the Crown and Proponents to respect and abide by this Protocol in all such interactions with AFN.
Consultation and Accommodation Standards for all Governments and companies interested in doing business or making decisions about any developments within the traditional and treaty territory of Curve Lake First Nation.
Treaties between Indigenous peoples and the Crown in Canada and New Zealand could
be seen as vital to each country's creation. If interpreted in their best light they can
build each country on principles of cooperation and consent. This perspective would
make all people within Canada and New Zealand treaty beneficiaries. To facilitate this
view, treaty interpretation should take into account factors beyond their historical
genesis. Treaties should be seen as law. They should be interpreted in light of
contemporary legal principles which respect Indigenous rights as a part of the rule of
law. The alternative to this approach builds Canada and New Zealand on questionable
ideas of discovery, occupation, adverse possession and conquest. Treaties provide an
alternative access to ideas surrounding national formation and reformation. They can
be regarded as among our highest laws and could strengthen and enrich Canada and
New Zealand if viewed in this light.
This article will show that the Royal Proclamation is part of a treaty between First Nations and the Crown which stands as a positive guarantee of First Nation self-government. The other part of the treaty is contained in an agreement ratified at Niagara in 1764. Within this treaty are found conditions that underpin the Proclamation and that lie outside of the bare language of the document's words. The portion of the treaty confirmed at Niagara has often been overlooked, with the result that the manuscript of the Proclamation has not been integrated with First Nation understandings of this document. A reconstruction of the events and
promises of 1763-4, which takes account of the treaty of Niagara, transforms conventional interpretations of colonialism which allow the Crown to ignore First Nations participation. Through this re-evaluation of early Canadian legal history, one is led to the conclusion that the Proclamation cannot be interpreted to undermine First Nations rights. As will be illustrated, Proclamation/Treaty of Niagara rights persisted throughout the early colonization of Canada. These Aboriginal rights survived to form and sustain the foundations of the First Nations/Crown relationship, and to inform Canada's subsequent treaty-making history. The approach developed in this paper will provide an example of the partiality of conventional ethnocentric colonial interpretations of Canadian legal history.
This is a case summary of Mikisew Cree First Nation v Canada (Minister of Canadian Heritage), 2005 SCC 69. This decision is significant because the duty to consult and accommodate was developed through the course of several cases that centred on title claims and the exercise of Aboriginal rights where there are no treaties. The decision in Mikisew Cree confirms that the Crownâs duty to consult and accommodate applies to treaty rights and on treaty lands.
The Stronger Together Toolkit shares the stories and lessons learned from 16 communities that are part of the joint First Nations-municipal Community Economic Development Initiative (CEDI), a program jointly delivered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) and Cando.

This document is designed to help municipalities and their staff understand the opportunities and responsibilities to engage and consult with Aboriginal communities, and provides examples of current experiences. (Note that this resource was published in 2009 and the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housingâs position was that municipalities have a duty to consult in some circumstances.)
This report is the result of a collaborative research project undertaken by a team of University of Toronto graduate students under the guidance of the Shared Path Consultation Initiative. Focusing on municipal Official Plans - which are the primary documents through which PPS directives are implemented at the municipal level - the project had two specific intentions:
1.) To critically assess the current landscape of municipal-Indigenous relationships, based on Official
2.) To develop an evaluation framework through which municipal Official Plans could be assessed for consistency with the 2020 PPS directives on Indigenous rights, and which could function as a guiding reference document for implementation work at the municipal level.
