Formidable interpretive challenges are posed by the provisions of the Constitution Act, 1982 that protect the Aboriginal and treaty rights of the Aboriginal peoples of Canada. This LL.M. thesis sets out a theoretical and legal framework for the interpretation of section 25 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982 and provides an appraisal of their scope and application.
