What We Do

Advocacy on behalf of Canada’s Law Societies

As the national voice of Canada’s law societies, when called upon by its member law societies, the Federation provides its views on issues of national importance including matters related to the regulation of the legal profession, solicitor client privilege, and the Rule of Law. Recent advocacy by the Federation includes submissions related to efforts to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing, international trade, the regulation of immigration law practitioners and intellectual property agents, amendments to the criminal code and matters related to privacy, public safety and security.  The Federation also intervenes before the courts in cases that raise matters of national importance.
