OKT’s lawyers bring their decades of experience advocating for Indigenous nations and organizations to the updated and revised version of this desk reference on Aboriginal law for Indigenous nations. The book provides an overview of Canadian law as it applies to Indigenous peoples from the duty to consult and accommodate to taxation and economic development to child welfare issues.
In the coming months OKT will be featuring excerpts from the book on our blog, providing a quick orientation and guides and charts to key areas of law. Watch our social media to find out more!
