The Honour of the Crown and its Fiduciary Duties to Aboriginal Peoples is the first and only book to comprehensively present these central doctrines of Aboriginal law. It seeks to systematically order and organize the law as it has been articulated by the Supreme Court and further shaped by other courts, thereby clarifying the interrelations characteristic of the doctrines and providing a sure grasp of their origins, scope and practical effects.
The fundamental objective of the modern law concerning Aboriginal peoples in Canada is reconciliation. Recent jurisprudence of the Supreme Court of Canada has identified the honour of the Crown and its fiduciary duties as legal concepts at the heart of the reconciliation imperative. The Court has held that the honour of the Crown is "a core precept that finds its application in concrete practices" and that "where the Crown has assumed discretionary control over specific Aboriginal interests, the honour of the Crown gives rise to a fiduciary duty.
