Aboriginal Law Series - Urban Reserves as a Tool for Economic Development
March 16, 2016

Experienced practitioners Christine Clifford and Kim Gilson will deal with a variety of issues relating to urban reserves from both a municipality and First Nation’s perspective, including: What is an urban reserve and what are the advantages of developing one? How do you advance First Nations’ economic initiatives through the development of an urban reserve? What are the goals of the Nation, and how do they balance them with the needs of the federal and provincial governments, as well as third party interest holders? The program will also address practical considerations when negotiating agreements with the neighbouring municipalities including accessing municipal information, bylaw compatibility, compensation for loss of property tax revenue, available municipal services and mechanisms for dispute resolution.
