November 17-19, 2021
CIAJ’s 45th Annual Conference on Indigenous Peoples and the Law explore the current state and future of the self-government of Indigenous Peoples in Canada. Vital to the discussion are the issues of the decolonization of legal institutions, reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples and the enduring legacy of a colonial relationship.
The recent finding of unmarked graves at residential school sites only reaffirms the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's vision of an “ongoing process of establishing and maintaining respectful relationships” with Indigenous Peoples. This conference is a space for dialogue and exchange on the continuation of active education and exploration of the TRC's message.
- The Honourable Murray Sinclair
- The Honourable Robert J. Bauman, Chief Justice of British Columbia and of the Court of Appeal of Yukon
