Summary
"Before Canada was a country Britain recognized that aboriginal people living here had title to land: the Royal Proclamation, 1763 declared that only the British Crown could acquire land from First Nations, and that was typically done through treaties. In most parts of Canada, the British Crown established treaties with First Nations before Confederation. The new Dominion of Canada continued this policy of making treaties before the west was opened for settlement, but in BC this process was never completed. When BC joined Confederation in 1871, only 14 treaties on Vancouver Island had been signed, and land title to the rest of the province was left unresolved. It wasn?t until 1970 that Canada?s aboriginal peoples could pursue aboriginal rights in the Supreme Court of Canada. With the exception of Treaty 8 in the northeastern corner of the province and negotiations with the Nisga?a Nation, most First Nations had to wait until 1993 to pursue their aboriginal rights through a made-in-BC treaty process."
