Ab-Law.ca is a boutique law firm specializing in Aboriginal Law. We prefer negotiated outcomes between affected Aboriginal communities, all levels of government, and industry, alike.  This firm has a national focus, with your local concern.

 

This firm specializes in all areas of Aboriginal law, with a focus given towards finding an acceptable balance between the concerns of Aboriginal communities and the needs of industry.  By working together, mutually beneficial solutions can be found that assist all parties, when engaging with the various levels of government.  Litigation and injunctions serve their purpose, but should only be used as a last resort under the Duty to Consult and Accommodate.   

 

I believe, that by utilizing the Duty to Consult and Accommodate, the impact of a proposed project can be minimized, receiving much needed local support during the approval process, and remaining as a long-lasting partnership.

 

For effective consultations, it is essential that Aboriginal communities are engaged at the beginning of a project's life-cycle, in order to develop long-term mutually beneficial relationships.

 

 

If you have specific questions pertaining to the law involving Aboriginal peoples, Aboriginal communities, and the legal issues they surround, please contact me, Eric Hovius, directly.
