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.

Ground-Rules: Indigenous Treaties in Canada and New Zealand


Description:

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.

Wampum at Niagara: The Royal Proclamation, Canadian Legal History, and Self-Government


Description:

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.

Case Summary- Mikisew Cree v Canada 2005

By: Shared Path Consultation Initiative

Tags: duty to consult and accommodate, consultation, law, aboriginal,

Description:

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 Crown’s duty to consult and accommodate applies to treaty rights and on treaty lands.

Mapping Collaboration: An Evaluation Framework to Assess Municipal Government Responses to PPS 2020

By: Charlie Caldwell, Joanna Ilunga-Kapinga, Marissa Irene Uli, Pragya Priyadarshini

Tags: Official Plan, Provincial Policy Statement, PPS, evaluation, aboriginal rights, treaty rights

Description:

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 Plan content 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.
