The Court has once again re-assessed the duty to consult. Are you on top of this rapidly evolving legal landscape?

The often challenging landscape of Indigenous law and the duty to consult is once again in the spot light. On August 30, 2018, the Federal Court of Appeal provided guidance on these contentious issues in Tsleil-Waututh Nation v Canada (the Trans Mountain Pipeline case).

Our outstanding panel of experts – including counsel for the Tsleil-Waututh Nation and the Upper Nicola Band – will guide you through the decision, the key issues and their implications, including:

  • What are Trans Mountain’s implications for whether a duty-to-consult process accords with s. 35 of the Constitution Act?
  • Does Trans Mountain help in assessing whether “meaningful dialogue” between the Crown and Indigenous peoples has occurred?
  • Where does Trans Mountain build on, or depart from, recent duty-to-consult jurisprudence?
  • How does Trans Mountain impact the requirements for procedural fairness in project approval processes?
  • What role did environmental concerns play in Trans Mountain and what are the consequences for future project approval processes?
