Since returning to the practice of law in 2005, Monique Caron devotes her practice to Aboriginal peoples, across a variety of domains including customary law, self-government, and matters relating to traditional activities and the practice of these activities.
For more than 20 years Monique acted as Secretary General to the Cree Hunters and Trappers Income Security Board, an organization contemplated by the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement. The principal objective of this organization and its programs is to ensure the continuation and survival of the traditional Cree way of life, by offering economic benefits to one of the community’s most important groups, the Cree hunters and trappers.
Prior to her time with the Cree Hunters and Trappers Income Security Board, Monique devoted 12 years to the practice of law dedicated to Aboriginal peoples, covering a variety of subjects including Aboriginal law, constitutional law, expropriation, and municipal, educational and health matters.
Monique also acted as legal counsel for the Crees of Quebec in the litigation concerning hydro-electric development in Northern Quebec. She participated in the negotiation and implementation of the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement including the drafting of both federal and provincial legislative and regulatory measures.
Monique carries out her practice in both French and English.
