The Notwithstanding Clause: Use It – or Lose It?

October 27, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

In recent years, provincial governments have turned with increasing frequency to Section 33 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms – otherwise known as the notwithstanding clause – to inoculate legislation from judicial invalidation. Should this trend be concerning, and does it represent a break from the historical norm? When, if ever, is it appropriate for Section 33 to be used?

Join us for an exclusive 60-minute webinar moderated by Aaron Wudrick, Director of Domestic Policy Program at Macdonald-Laurier Institute and featuring Dave Snow, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Guelph, and Leonid Sirota, Associate Professor of Law at the University of Reading.
