Historical Research

Havlik Metcs is widely recognized for its expertise in the area of historical research and the practical application of this research to the preparation of specific claims for numerous individual First Nations and collective Treaty and Aboriginal Rights Research Programs.  To date, we have researched and prepared over 70 specific claims with a negotiated or anticipated settlement value in excess of $1 billion.  Our work has set the standard for quality and completeness in this area.

Our focus is on applied research and the practical organization of information.  We believe that the primary objective of historical research regarding the specific claims process is to find, and exhibit, the historical facts necessary to allow for an efficient resolution of the issue at hand.  We focus on results, the final product.  Our clients can expect that all research and preparation work will be undertaken with this primary purpose in mind.
