The objectives of the 2016 PSAC Regional Conference for Racially Visible Members are to:
Court Challenges Program
PSAC welcomes the government delivering on its promise to reinstate the Court Challenges program. This will improve access to justice for equality-seeking groups.
The former Conservative government cancelled the Court Challenges Program in 2006. The budget document notes, “This program has been instrumental in bringing cases to the courts that clarify and assert Charter rights”. However, for the program to be meaningful, it must have adequate funding and resources.
