It is open to governments to set up regulatory schemes to address the procedural requirements appropriate to different problems at different stages, thereby strengthening the reconciliation process and reducing recourse to the courts.
Haida Nation v Canada, 2004
Administrative law regulates the relationship between individuals and the Crown (Canada and the provinces and territories). A major component of Administrative law is judicial review, or the appeal of an administrative or executive decision of the Crown. In the Aboriginal context, the duty to consult is often challenged through administrative processes.
