Following a landmark Daviels v. Canada Supreme Court decision, the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples is thrilled to host the Daniels Symposium which is meant to spark dialogue between grassroots Indigenous Peoples, stakeholders, and the government of Canada. The event will be held on March 21st – 22nd, 2017 on traditional unceded Algonquin territory in Ottawa, Ontario (with four satellite locations in Winnipeg, Montreal, Corner Brook, and Edmonton). Participants will have the unique opportunity to share their thoughts and concerns with grassroots representatives, legal scholars, and politicians to help define what the ruling means, its ramifications, and future impacts.
Lanise Hayes, partner and head of the Indigenous Law practice group at Nelligan O’Brien Payne will be speaking on March 21st at 1:45 p.m. on Programs, Services and Misconceptions.
