We’re Going Virtual!

Due to social distancing and large group gathering restrictions, CI’s 20th Annual Advanced Administrative Law & Practice has changed format from a live, in-person event to an interactive, virtual conference.

The conference will follow a similar schedule and agenda as originally planned.

Canadian administrative law has entered a new era.

With the Supreme Court’s decision in Vavilov, administrative bodies must grapple with increased scrutiny of their reasoning in rendering decisions. The extensive criteria for “reasonableness” appear to demand much more of decision-makers, who do not always have legal training, and bodies that are subject to statutory appeals must face an even more burdensome correctness standard.

The Canadian Institute’s 20th Annual Conference on Advanced Administrative Law and Practice returns this year, in a fully virtual and interactive format, to help you make sense of these developments, understand how you are affected, and make your decision-making as resistant as possible to fierce judicial review.

20th Anniversary Highlights
  • Thorough analysis of Vavilov and its implications for administrative bodies
  • Timely COVID-related content on operating in the context of the pandemic and beyond
  • Diverse perspectives: federal and provincial decision-makers, judges, professors, and external counsel
…and much more!
