Regional Committee for Ontario

The Regional Committees are primarily responsible for administering the advocacy program in their respective regions. The Institute's services are offered in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, and Atlantic Canada.

The Institute is intended to be a public service available to all counsel in Canada. We encourage counsel from a province that does not yet have a committee to contact the Institute, as we may be able to arrange for an advocacy session.

Membership in the Regional Committees is representative of both the civil and criminal bars, and both governmental and private practice. The Institute’s programs would be impossible without the dedicated support of the regional committee members.
