Indigenous peoples; Aboriginal peoples; duty to consult; duty to accommodate


The aim in this paper is twofold. First, the historical development of the case law around the duty to consult will be laid out (e.g. Delgamuukw v. British Columbia and subsequent cases) and an attempt will be made to make sense of this body of jurisprudence (on both doctrinal and critical levels). Second, an attempt will be made to read out of the current doctrine how future events may unfold 'on the ground' in the legal and political arena in British Columbia and elsewhere in Canada.
