Action Committee on Access to Justice in Civil and Family Matters Meeting
April 12, 2017 | By TAG_Admin |
Last month TAG participated in the annual meeting of the Action Committee in Vancouver. The meeting featured findings from a national online survey of access to justice activities, explored how to establish national access to justice metrics and examined how access to justice relates to Reconciliation and Indigenous Legal Orders. In addition, there were keynote remarks from Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin and Lisa Foster, former Director of the US Office for Access to Justice under the Obama Administration.
Sabreena Delhon spoke about TAG’s work with librarians on a panel about engagement along with Serena Kullar (Social Worker, BC Women’s Hospital) and Emma Halpern (Equity Officer, Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society).
