Canadian Aboriginal Law in 2018: Essays and Case Summaries
By Bruce McIvor
The book includes essays and analysis as well as short summaries of over 40 court decisions from 2018, hyperlinks to the full decisions and a detailed index by issue. It also includes a French translation of one our most popular essays from 2018.
This collection is our attempt to compile some of the most useful and important decisions from Canadian courts in 2018 on issues related to Indigenous Peoples and Aboriginal law and to comment on some of the important emerging issues.
It is not intended as a comprehensive or authoritative list of all Aboriginal law cases from 2018, nor is every issue covered in depth. Rather, it represents our own idiosyncratic overview of decisions we found particularly notable.
Despite its modest objectives, we hope this collection proves to be a useful guide and resource for Indigenous people, lawyers, students and the general public engaged in the difficult work of decolonization.
Please let us know what you think and share your ideas for improving it—we plan to make this a yearly publication.
