Hosted by the Land Claims Agreements Coalition in collaboration with the Civil Law Section of the University of Ottawa, this conference will be hands-on and results oriented: participants will identify and frame a modern treaty research agenda for the upcoming years. A summary agenda is attached; a list of confirmed speakers is available on the registration website listed above. Please note also that the much-anticipated book from the LCAC Royal Proclamation Symposium entitled “Keeping Promises” will be launched during an open reception on Dec 7 as part of this conference.

Making Treaties Work will be the start of a new era of modern treaty research in Canada. You need to be a part of it.
