The Duty to Consult: New Relationships with Aboriginal Peoples by law professor Dwight C. Newman offers an overview of the nature of the Crown's obligation to consult with Aboriginal Peoples when the Crown is aware of a potential action that may affects the rights of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis. For this constantly changing process, the author examines the court decisions, legislation, policies, and consultation process regarding this duty. He offers background on Aboriginal rights, treaty rights, the consultation process, legally acceptable consultation, good consultation, Aboriginal Communities' Consultation Policies, and Corporate Consultation Policies. The final section of the book offers an international and comparative experience including Australia's Experience. The book contains an index and bibliography.
