Drum roll…

  • May 19, 2022

We are excited to announce the return of the in-person CBA Administrative Law, Labour and Employment Law Conference, November 4-5, 2022 in Ottawa.

In the meantime, planning is underway, so if you have topics you would like to see covered or speakers you think would be great, please let us know. Recordings are available from our 2021 Online Symposium.

We have also been busy on the law reform front. The Section was part of a CBA multi-section working group including the CBA Women Lawyers Forum and the CBA Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Community Section which prepared a submission on the Employment Equity Act Review. Read our joint submission.

If you would like to get more involved in the Section, apply for a vacant position on the 2022-2023 national Executive (deadline May 31, 2022).

More details on all upcoming initiatives below.
