Event description

Description

In countries across the world, the rule of law is under threat. What is Canada’s experience? Have courts and administrative bodies been impacted? Join us for an event hosted by the International Commission of Jurists Canada and the Canadian Human Rights Commission.

As stated by former Chief Justice Beverly McLachlan: “...without administrative tribunals, the rule of law in the modern regulatory state would falter and fail.”

Join human rights advocates, jurists and legal experts as we explore the risks facing Canadian judicial and quasi-judicial bodies and preserving independence and the rule of law.

This afternoon event at Hotel Bonaventure, in Montreal, is on the last day of the Council of Canadian Administrative Tribunals' (CCAT) 35th Annual Symposium: Common Challenges, Diverse Solutions: Administrative Justice in a World of Change. This event will take place on May 28, 2019 from 1:45 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
