What are Aboriginal Fishing Rights?


The 1982 Canadian Constitution Act, Section 35, recognizes and affirms Aboriginal rights.  Section 1 states “The existing aboriginal and treaty rights of the aboriginal peoples of Canada are hereby recognized and affirmed", which begs the question: What are the existing aboriginal and treaty rights?  Please join us to hear from Michelle James whose career includes 35 years experience in BC fisheries management.  Her career included 15 years with the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans where one of her assignments was as an advisor on the fisheries component of the Nisga'a Treaty.  Michelle will talk about the history and evolution of the recognized and affirmed aboriginal fishing and treaty rights in BC.
