This public legal education conference is designed to take a look at asserted Aboriginal and treaty rights/responsibilities in relation to water and to discuss how these rights may fit into the current statutory regime in Alberta.

Various experts will be invited to present their views on Aboriginal perspectives on water, the existence and scope of Aboriginal rights to water, ways in which these rights currently are and could be accommodated in the regulatory regime pertaining to water, the issue of safe drinking water on reserve, and transboundary water issues.
