The Supreme Court of Canada will decide the proper approach to the interpretation and implementation of the Crown’s promise to increase annuity payments to the Anishinaabe Treaty beneficiaries under the Robinson Huron and Robinson Superior Treaties.
The Robinson Huron & Robinson Superior Treaties
In 1850, the Anishinaabe of the Upper Great Lakes region entered into agreements known as the Robinson Huron and Robinson Superior Treaties with the Crown based on principles of peace, sharing and reciprocity.
As part of the treaties, the Crown promised an annual monetary payment to the Anishinaabe which would be increased over time if resource development in the territories was sufficiently profitable.
