Product details

Indigenous communities in Canada face a number of obstacles in realizing economic development, including a lack of access to financial capital; lack of sufficient control over land and resources; legislative and policy impediments; and lack of implementation of self-government. Through the accommodation of aboriginal rights, Indigenous communities have been able to leverage impact and benefit negotiations to further their economic development.

Legal Issues on Indigenous Economic Development explores the legal framework concerning economic development opportunities for Indigenous communities and nations. With over 20 years of experience, practicing and teaching in this area, Darwin Hanna offers valuable perspective on addressing the unique obstacles to and the legal framework for Indigenous economic growth.

An authoritative text
Part textbook, part casebook, this volume provides a comprehensive overview of the various aspects of business law that are relevant to Indigenous communities in Canada and to Aboriginal economic development. Hanna shares his insight into the principles governing Aboriginal and business law, providing readers with a deeper understanding of the key decisions, concepts and doctrines in this changing and evolving area.

National in scope, Legal Issues on Indigenous Economic Development features:

  • An authoritative look at all aspects of Aboriginal economics
  • Broad coverage of this emerging and rapidly expanding area of law
  • Expert commentary and analysis of legislation and case law

A practical reference
Though written primarily for the academic market, this book is a useful resource for boutique Aboriginal law firms and rural practices that regularly deal with First Nations rights, business and natural resources matters, as well as:

  • Law students who are interested in learning about all aspects of Aboriginal law
  • Governments who require up to date information about Aboriginal economic interests relevant to land, resources and treaty rights
  • Practitioners and in-house counsel who advise Aboriginal businesses and clients dealing with Aboriginal claims or issues
  • Libraries who want to provide a resource for lawyers and students who don't regularly deal with Aboriginal law matters
  • Indigenous governments and organizations
