Aboriginal governments are often engaged in negotiations with other governments, including those that seek to reconcile Aboriginal and Crown jurisdiction and authority. We negotiate and advise on multiple types of agreements that set out these nation-to-nation, government-to-government relationships, such as reconciliation agreements, treaties, revenue-sharing agreements, local servicing agreements, and shared decision-making agreements.
