Indigenous law and regulatory frameworks: the evolving landscape

Tuesday, March 6, 2018
Room 717
Jurisprudence related to Aboriginal rights in Canada and regulatory initiatives continue to evolve over time, providing clarity in some areas while at the same time raising new questions and complexities. This ultimately contributes to shaping and reshaping the landscape of the mineral sector. Increasing dialogue related to various frameworks and court decisions also contribute to the way in which companies and communities perceive and understand their roles in the sector. This session will examine some of the recent legal decisions, frameworks and regulatory initiatives, as well as key challenges and opportunities that arise for mineral companies and Aboriginal communities in relation to the mineral exploration and mining landscape.
