Seminar summary

The term "equality" is used frequently these days to define and condemn the discriminatory historical element among several communities globally, including in Canada. Our presenters explore why knowledge of history is critical to a better understanding of rights, practices and attitudes faced by peoples having various Citizenship/Immigration status today, and to also highlight the elements impacting their rights in the Canadian justice system when dealing with enforcement agencies, including police at all levels and the CBSA (Canada Border Services Agency).

Learn the value of equity, diversity, and inclusion principles within a legal context and how you can help to address and educate your clients to promote improved outcomes and better opportunities based on equal rights in the Canadian Constitution.
