October 11, 2018 – Ottawa, Ontario – Department of Justice Canada

The Honourable Jody Wilson-Raybould, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada issued the following statement:

“Today, the Government of Canada received the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in Chief Steve Courtoreille et al vs Governor in Council et al. This decision helps clarify how the duty to consult operates in relation to the legislative process. The Government will now thoroughly review the decision.

“While the court has been clear that the duty to consult is not triggered in the legislative process, it also makes clear that Indigenous rights must be respected, upheld and protected.

“Our Government remains wholly committed to respecting our Constitution and respecting and upholding Indigenous rights, and will continue to work collaboratively with Indigenous peoples on matters that directly and significantly affect them.”
