Biography

“I’m a father, a sailor, and a lawyer. I’m proud of all three. They’ve given me drive, compassion and plenty of experience to be proud of.”

Brian Daly is a Senior Counsel at McKenzie Lake and his practice is predominantly in the field of Indigenous law, including Rights and Governance, Litigation and Advocacy, and Corporate and Commercial. Here, the engagements are typically by an Indigenous entity connected to community and economic, social, and cultural activities and affairs, and at times connected to powers acknowledged in the First Nation Lands Management Act, the First Nation Fiscal Management Act and inherent Indigenous rights.

Brian Daly’s experience includes providing services to Indigenous entities connected to the organization and operation of programs and services (including policing and other emergency services, health care, child care, education, community water supply and wastewater treatment, housing, economic development), workplace differences and investigations, governance laws and controverted elections,  boundary and land rights claims, ATR applications, FNTC applications, judicial review applications, consultations with the Crown and proponents, land and revenue laws, and broadly, the development, implementation, and operation of legal infrastructure connected to economic, social, and cultural projects.

Brian Daly is a member of McKenzie Lake’s Indigenous Practice Group.

Brian Daly is licensed by the Law Societies of Ontario and Alberta and is certified by the Law Society of Ontario in the field of civil litigation.

When Brian was younger, he was a national sailing champion, but in more recent years he sails and spends time with his family at his lakeside cottage. Brian would like to be able to play more decent golf but has accepted that this may be wishful thinking.
