We are strategic.
Indigenous Peoples in Canada have some of the most powerful environmental rights in the world: but only if they can afford to uphold them in court. That’s where RAVEN comes in. We provide access to justice to Indigenous Nations who are using the courts to push back against ill-advised industrial projects.
THE ENVIRONMENTAL CHALLENGES THAT FACE MANY INDIGENOUS PEOPLES IN CANADA ARE REALLY CHALLENGES FOR THE ENTIRE WORLD. FUNDAMENTALLY, WE BELIEVE THESE ARE ISSUES OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND CLIMATE CHANGE. GUIDED BY SOME OF THE MOST BRILLIANT LEGAL ADVISORS IN THE COUNTRY, WE WORK TO ENSHRINE ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE FOR ALL.
We are committed.
We stick with Nations through thick and thin so they can weather the challenge of lengthy court challenges. Though Nations tend to be outspent 100:1 by industry and government, our incredible community is helping Indigenous Peoples win case after case.
We're lean and nimble.
Like our namesake, the mythical northwest coast trickster bird Raven, we take on challenges that very few are willing to tackle. By doing so, we are reshaping the legal landscape and transforming the future. Join us.
The law is clearly on the side of Indigenous Peoples: their victories protect us all.
