Current Consultations

The British Columbia Law Institute (BCLI) and the Canadian Centre for Elder Law (CCEL) solicit public comment on their work as part of the law reform and research process.

Public consultations take a variety of formats depending on the subject, project objectives, timelines and funding. Public feedback is often requested on a consultative document that outlines BCLI or CCEL research and tentative law reform proposals. Consultations may also include focus groups, one on one interviews, structured discussions with stakeholder organizations and online surveys.
