Health Law

The Indigenous health and wellness landscape is complex and requires specific expertise to navigate the jurisdictional, cultural and equity issues that may arise. As Indigenous communities continue to regain autonomy over the creation, implementation and delivery of health and wellness services, the interjurisdictional differences between Indigenous laws and worldviews and Canadian policy and legislation can create uncertainty about roles and responsibilities. Arbutus Law Group can assist with the systemic review of federal and provincial health legislation, the development of health laws and policies in community and advancing the incorporation of cultural practices, customs, and traditions into new and existing frameworks.
