Indigenous land claim property valuation
Resolve Indigenous land claim disputes with the support of an independent valuation, backed by historical research
The Government of Canada is in negotiations with Indigenous communities across Canada to right past wrongs and advance land dispute reconciliation efforts. No two situations are alike, and having an independent, expert opinion on the historical market value of the land, backed by an expert report and testimony, is critical to achieving a successful resolution.
Our national team understands the complex issues that are involved in Indigenous land claims and have worked on a number of different disputes for both Indigenous communities and the Government of Canada. We have experience in all aspects of land claim valuation including surrender, flooding, Treaty Land Entitlement (TLE) claims and estimation of loss-of-use compensation.
Support your reconciliation efforts with a unique and tailored approach
Valuation services can vary depending on the unique land claim at hand. Some examples of services we have offered in the past include:
- Historical and current market value research
- Development of a loss-of-use model based on historical real estate values
- An estimated value of shortfall in Treaty Land Entitlement (TLE) and loss-of-use of that land from time of treaty to present
- Historical research into development patterns in land settlements
- Expert opinion, report and testimony at negotiation meetings and presentations
- Development of the value bench-marking method
