Happy New Year and welcome to a new year of the Insurance Law Section of the Canadian Bar Association. Insurance Law captures a wide range of diverse practice areas for lawyers in Canada. While the bulk of insurance law practices are subject to provincial regulation, aspects of the industry are regulated and monitored by both provincial and federal governments.

As a national Section, we hope to be a forum for Canadian insurance lawyers to discuss national issues but also understand the important regional developments across the country.

As they say, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Nowhere is that more obvious than in the altering, tweaking and sometimes wholescale overhauling of auto insurance regimes by provincial governments – get an update on the current trends by registering for our webinar, “What’s New in Canadian Auto Insurance: Past and Present Experiences.” Details below.

After years of isolation, we’re hoping to connect insurance law practitioners across the nation with a virtual networking event. We’ll have full support from CBA staff, but we need your ideas and enthusiasm! If you’re interested in joining the planning subcommittee, please email

Finally, we are dedicated to working to increase section engagement and provide value to our members. What would you like to see from this section? Shoot me an email or give me a call to discuss how this section can help support your practice area.

I’m looking forward to connecting with you throughout 2023!
