Who is an Indian? Implications of the Daniels Decision and Other Métis Issues (Archived Video Stream) 

Apr. 23, 2013
Toronto Online

This is the archived version of a program presented on April 23, 2013.

In the recent landmark decision of Daniels v. Canada, the Federal Court ended twelve years of litigation, holding that Métis and non-status Aboriginal peoples are “Indians” for purposes of s. 91(24) of the Constitution Act, 1867.

Explore the implications of this watershed decision and other Métis issues.  Our esteemed speakers will explore key issues such as whether the decision creates positive obligations on the federal government, implications for the provincial government, and how the decision may impact future negotiations, consultation and litigation.
