Update on legal professions regulatory modernization in BC

  • October 20, 2023

On October 19, the Ministry of Attorney General announced that the proposed legislation setting out the creation of a single legal regulator has been delayed to next spring to allow more time for external consultations, including with CBABC.

Following our response in November 2022 to the Intentions Paper, we look forward to continuing to engage with government in the development of the legislation. We meet with the Attorney General next month to tell her our support for the single regulator model is contingent on preserving lawyers’ independence and self-regulation.
