Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) 1973, 13 I.L.M. 1088

This Treaty prohibits any trade or dealing in listed species, while regulating the trade in others. It also requires states to penalize any such dealings or imports. It may be that, as a result of the guarantee of aboriginal rights in the Charter, legislation in regard to endangered species may be held unconstitutional as against Canada’s aboriginal peoples.
