The Council of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada is the governing body of the Federation and is responsible for the strategic direction and oversight of the organization.
Membership and Meetings
The Federation is governed by a Council consisting of elected Council members nominated by the Federation’s 14 member law societies for a renewable term of one year. The Federation’s immediate Past President, President and incoming President (known as the Vice President and President-elect) are also members of Council. The Council meets in person three times per year and at other times by teleconference.
In between meetings of Council, oversight of the Federation is delegated to an Executive Committee consisting of the President, the Vice-President and President-elect, and a second Vice President. Members of the Executive serve for a one year term and are selected on the basis of a pre-established rotation from all regions of Canada.
