In its just-published Agenda for Justice 2017, the Canadian Bar Association, BC Branch, has endorsed four BCLI reports. This places these reports among the “series of justice and legislative reforms aimed at improving access to justice for all British Columbians” that make up the Agenda for Justice 2017.
“BCLI is grateful to receive CBABC’s endorsement of its work,” said BCLI chair Lisa A. Peters, QC. “We look forward to implementation of some or all of our recommendations by government in the future.”
The four reports endorsed in the Agenda for Justice 2017 are the Report on Proposals for Unfair Contracts Relief (2011), Report on Proposals for a New Commercial Tenancy Act (2009), Report on Reverse Mortgages (2006; a publication of BCLI’s division, the Canadian Centre for Elder Law), and Report on the Uniform Civil Enforcement of Money Judgments Act (2005).
