Tom Molloy, Counsel to the Saskatoon office of Miller Thomson where he practices
primarily in the areas of Aboriginal and Business law, and chief federal
negotiator with the government of Canada
for almost 30 years, will receive Saskatchewan’s highest honour, the Order of
Merit, which recognizes individuals who have contributed significantly to the
well-being of the province and its residents.
Mr. Molloy is a respected negotiator
for indigenous land claims and treaty settlements. Over the four decades that
he has been practicing law, he has been instrumental in numerous Aboriginal
claims settlements across Canada.
He played a leading role in the negotiations with the Inuit of Nunavut that led
to the creation of the Territory of Nunavut in 1999 and was a key player in commencing
Canada’s participation in the British Columbia Treaty Commission process.
Earlier this month, Tom was also
honoured with Lexpert’s 2012 Zenith Award.
