Search and Seizure: Sniffer Dogs

Posted by Johannes Schenk on April 25th, 2008 — Posted in Employment Law, Human Rights Law, Labour Law, Municipal Law

The Supreme Court of Canada released two important decisions concerning search and seizure using sniffer dogs that will no doubt affect the way employers can search employee property and “private spaces” such as bags, knapsacks, locker spaces, change rooms, cars in parking lots and other like places and items.

See R. v. A.M., 2008 SCC 19 and R. v. Kang‑Brown for searches involving sniffer dogs in a school and a bus depot.
