Negotiations between the three parties involved in the Robinson-Huron Treaty Annuities Case are ongoing.
Officials say Canada, Ontario and the 21 Robinson Huron Treaty First Nations, including Nipissing and Dokis, continue to work together to try and find common ground outside the courtroom.
“We are making good progress at the negotiation table and are pleased to be working together in the spirit of reconciliation, respect, cooperation and partnership towards a solution,” says Chief Dean Sayers of Batchewana First Nation.
The update comes nearly two weeks after they sought a further adjournment of litigation.
“We know that members of our communities are invested in the progress of the case,” says spokesperson Duke Peltier of Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory. “We will work to make sure information is shared – and that it is accurate and clear. You will hear directly from us when we are able to provide updates on the case, which we hope will be soon.”
Details of the talks, which began on Jan. 16, remain confidential.
Officials say all parties hope to provide updates as key milestones are reached in the process.
