Métis harvesting in Alberta

Description

The 2003 Supreme Court of Canada decision, R. v. Powley, found that a Métis collective in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario has an Aboriginal right to hunt for food and is recognized and affirmed under section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982, in the Sault Ste. Marie area. In that case, the Supreme Court of Canada set out the test to be applied to determine whether a Métis collective has an aboriginal right to harvest. This test forms the basis of Alberta’s current Métis Harvesting in Alberta policy.
