Please note that while some of these cases are a few years old, they contain legal principles that are still cited by lower courts across Canada.
We would like to thank the Department of Justice Canada, Supporting Families Fund, for funding our Family Law Lesson Plans and Justice Canada –Canadian Family Justice Fund for funding the update of our lesson plans.
We would also like to thank Candray Mehkary of the Family Law Section, Legal Services Branch, Manitoba Justice, for reviewing the lesson plans.
We would also like to thank Caroline Pellerin for translating the lesson plan.
When reading these cases, please note that Canadian law uses the term “Aboriginal”, and this area of law is often called “Aboriginal Law”. We have written these summaries using the term “Indigenous” instead, except when part of a direct quote.
