Aboriginal law is that part of our legal system that regulates the relationship between the Aboriginal people of Canada, the Canadian government and the rest of the Canadian society. It has many components. Treaty negotiations and rights, natural resources harvesting rights, land and fisheries use, residential and school abuse, are all part of this multidimensional area of law.  It also influences traditional areas of law, such as taxation, commercial development, oil and gas rights, labour law, criminal law and family law that need to be regarded in the context of Aboriginal law if they involve Canada's Aboriginal people.
