The concept of cumulative effects offers a wide lens to view the impact of development on Aboriginal groups. Rather than focusing on narrow, project-specific impacts and infringements, cumulative effects includes long-term effects across a wide range of development projects. By taking a larger view of the overall impact of development on Aboriginal communities, cumulative effects will dramatically change how projects are negotiated and disputes are resolved.

This program assembles leading experts who are bringing this doctrine to the forefront of Aboriginal law. Faculty have experience with cumulative effects in litigation, regulatory hearings, and at the negotiating table. Delegates will gain insights from speakers from communities that are experiencing cumulative effects right now. Come and learn about the next big concept in Aboriginal law.
