CBA Law Series - An Introduction to Indigenous Rights in Real Property

On Thursday, May 30, 2019, Julie Abouchar will be presenting at the CBA Law Series Session titled: An Introduction to Indigenous Rights in Real Property.

Indigenous property rights can impact real estate transactions coast to coast.  Indigenous land title differs significantly from freehold tenure.  On-reserve conveyancing and financing present an entirely novel vocabulary and statutory framework to the uninitiated.  Likewise, Indigenous legal and treaty rights may impact off-reserve land, requiring practitioners in the civil or common law system to identify and address client risks in the course of a transaction.  This course aims to give general real estate practitioners an essential and practical primer on Indigenous real property rights.

Julie's presentation is titled: Aboriginal Issues and Private Property Transactions Off-Reserve.
