Advancing Indigenous Claims / Protecting Indigenous Rights
CG Law is dedicated to working with Indigenous communities to develop comprehensive strategies which will assist you in achieving your objectives and fulfilling your vision. We collaborate with a team designed to meet the specific needs of a case which may include political lobbyists, the media, financial, historical and other experts.
Experience includes advancing land claims and treaty rights though negotiations and alternative Dispute Resolution Mechanisms, and where necessary, through litigation before the courts and other tribunals. We have experience before all levels of court including the Supreme Court of Canada, the Ontario and Federal Courts of Appeal as well as other tribunals such as Specific Claims, the Canadian Industrial Relations Board and the Ontario Energy Board.
We develop creative partnerships between Indigenous communities, government and industry related to land and resource use, including benefits agreements with partners, community land use, additions to reserve and environmental stewardship initiatives all of which are designed to advance the health and prosperity of Nations.
