Duty to Consult

In Canada there is a duty to consult and engage with First Nations, Inuit, Métis, Northerns, and the public regarding any Government activity that might adversely impact Indigenous people or their treaty rights, under the Constitution Act. This duty to consult is important for businesses who may need to use Crown land for purposes such a mining, forestry, drilling, etc.
