The first compensation decisions of the Specific Claims Tribunal were released in 2016, providing guidance in respect of current compensation owing to First Nations for historical breaches of obligations by Canada. At the same time, claims before the Tribunal have become lengthy and expensive pursuits, and Canada is openly questioning whether the existing specific claims policy and process are in keeping with a recognition of rights or a reconciliation-based approach to addressing issues between the Crown and Indigenous peoples.
A panel of speakers will share their thoughts and prompt discussion regarding current issues and suggestions for changes to the specific claims process, including ways to ensure that claims before the Specific Claims Tribunal to proceed more quickly and efficiently.
