The Tsilhqot'in Nation v. British Columbia Case: What it Means and What it Doesn't Mean

Aboriginal Law Group

After 339 days of hearings over five years, and at a cost of almost $30 million, a court in British Columbia has expressed its opinion that the Tsilhqot'in Nation has aboriginal title to approximately 2,000 square kilometres of land, but stopped short of making that opinion legally binding by granting a declaration of aboriginal title.
