CIAJ’s 42nd Annual Conference on Diversity
The Charter Challenge Conundrum: The Clash of Rights and Values and the Canadian Cultural Mosaic

This conference is accredited in provinces where CLE requirements for lawyers are mandatory and eligible for up to 14.25 CPD hours.

Participation at this conference is approved under Section 41 (1) of the Judges Act.

What is the effect of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms on the resolution of issues of culture and religion? Are the courts getting the mix right? Is the law falling behind or is it leading? These and many more questions will be addressed during this multi-disciplinary conference, which will be of interest to all members of the legal community. The event will bring together over 40 speakers from across Canada. 

Honorary Chair

  • The Honourable Nicole Duval Hesler, Chief Justice of Quebec
