Aboriginal and Treaty Rights

In 1982, the first Ministers of Canada affirmed and recognized Aboriginal and Treaty rights, now entrenched within the Constitution.

In 1985, the Supreme Court of Canada confirmed that the Treaty of 1752 is an existing treaty and protected under the Constitution. The courts also acknowledged that an Indian treaty is sui generis (unique).
