A year has passed since the landmark Supreme Court of Canada decision in Tsilhqot’in Nation v. British Columbia. This ground-breaking judgment was heralded as having far-reaching effects on Aboriginal title, treaty negotiations, and development proposals on territories claimed by First Nations. Over the past year, the Courts, governments and First Nations have responded to the decision and its legal and pragmatic implications. Join us as we explore recent changes and look to the future implications of this monumental development.

This program looks back over the past year to see what has happened in the wake of Tsilhqot’in, and looks forward at what the future may hold as this decision is broadly applied. Our stellar faculty will discuss on-the-ground developments for the Tsilhqot’in, and consider how the decision has already and will continue to impact numerous important areas including Aboriginal title claims, consultation and treaty negotiation.
