This comprehensive casebook surveys the most important issues in Canadian law concerning Aboriginal peoples, contextualising them within their larger cultural, political and sociological framework.

Also intended to be a general reference work for lawyers, judges, Indian chiefs and council members, Metis and Inuit leaders, and policy makers for governments and businesses who work with Aboriginal people, it surveys the most important issues in Canadian law concerning Aboriginal people.

The materials also contain insights into questions courts have left unanswered, providing readers with ideas about how the law will develop in the future. Furthermore, the book provides important historical and political context to enable readers who are not familiar with the field to easily navigate its contours and issues.

Extensively updated, this edition covers the Supreme Court's interpretive approach to modern land claims agreements, development of the duty to consult and accommodate Aboriginal Rights; the extension of Indian status; the Residential School Apology; Indian Act tax exemptions, Constitution Act and Charter implications.
