Equity for Aboriginal People in the Legal System
Call To Action:
52. We call upon the Government of Canada, provincial
and territorial governments, and the courts to adopt the
following legal principles:
i. Aboriginal title claims are accepted once the
Aboriginal claimant has established occupation over
a particular territory at a particular point in time.
ii. Once Aboriginal title has been established, the
burden of proving any limitation on any rights
arising from the existence of that title shifts to the
party asserting such a limitation.
