With many of Canada’s leading lawyers in all areas of Aboriginal law, Miller Thomson’s Aboriginal Law Group provides a national platform for sophisticated and strategic advice to industry, Indigenous peoples, crown entities and governments on a full suite of legal services.  Our clients recognize the critical role that Indigenous peoples will play as drivers of our economy in the years to come.

In facilitating project development, we advise on all matters involving Aboriginal consultation and accommodation, including negotiating participation and benefit agreements, environmental assessments, permitting and other regulatory approvals. We provide in depth knowledge and expertise in matters involving Aboriginal and treaty rights, as they relate to reserve land development, land claims, treaty land entitlement claims, past grievances, First Nations Land Management and governance.

Our team appreciates the unique and challenging issues at stake and can draw upon both our national platform and regional strengths providing advice that is particular to the legal landscape and unique Aboriginal or treaty rights present in each jurisdiction.
