About the Blog

Administrative law touches on almost every aspect of the Canadian legal landscape. It oversees the way we work, the way we are governed and many of the benefits and rights we enjoy as citizens of this country. Most people’s experience with Canada’s justice system will be with some form of administrative tribunal and not with the regular Courts.

I thought it would be interesting to follow some small body of the case law as it develops. In particular, I wanted to post on some of the issues as they arise in a labour law and municipal law context. Employment law is a related area that I will post on from time to time.
