There has never been a more important time to refresh or familiarize yourself with Canadian Aboriginal law. The final report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada has influenced public institutions to do more to address the outstanding issues in Canadian-Aboriginal relations placing Canadian Aboriginal law in the spotlight. Come discover how Lexpert's accredited full-day course on Canadian Aboriginal law can provide you with a complete understanding of the changing landscape and obstacles within your area of expertise while giving you a chance to network with partners and peers. This course is specially designed for legal counsel practicing Aboriginal, Energy, Environmental, Natural Resources, Property, or Constitutional Law and for senior executives from Oil & Gas and Pipeline corporations, Mining and Forestry corporations, and Power and Energy corporations to understand the current state of the law with respect to reconciliation, consultation, undrip, and Metis rights. A wide range of topics will be covered including Canada's endorsement of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Metis Section 35 Rights, and Aboriginal and consultation case law review. This course is also highly recommended for land and property developers, government officials, and policy officers, analysts, and advisors
