Treaties are vital to the protection of First Nations’ land, rights, culture, and identity. Negotiating modern treaties involves unique challenges that must be understood and overcome in order for the process to succeed. Consideration must be given to not only the content of the treaty, but also pre-treaty and post-treaty circumstances. Those involved in the process must be well-informed about the latest developments that affect their negotiating positions. This program features expert faculty who will provide insights into legal and policy changes that are shaping modern treaty negotiations, as well as in-depth discussion of the implications, dangers, and benefits of Modern Treaties in Canada.
