  • Duty to Consult
    The Duty to Consult is triggered when a project has the potential to negatively impact Indigenous and treaty rights as affirmed within Section 35 of the Canadian Constitution. Virtually every square inch of Canada is subject to Section 35 rights; oftentimes with multiple Indigenous Nations overlapping with Section 35 rights in the same area. Our Duty to Consult Team can help your organization navigate the Duty to Consult for a successful project.
