Congratulations on Supreme Court Boundary Decision

Congratulations on Supreme Court Boundary Decision

The Western boundary of Treaty 8 was officially defined as the Arctic-Pacific Divide on Jan. 22, 2021, by the Supreme Court of Canada. Finally, after 120+ years, a Treaty 8 First Nation member can step outside their front door and know exactly where they may exercise their Treaty rights.

Congratulations to those Treaty 8 First Nations who have been fighting for so long, to the Elders who shared their histories, and to the numerous legal counsel, experts, law students, legal assistants, and consultants who had a hand in the victory.
