CBABC actively develops policy and law reform. We respond to regulatory and government initiatives and we lobby for issues important to our members.

We engage the BC legislature through written submissions, committee appearances and informal meetings. We are in regular consultation with representatives from government and regulatory bodies, and business owners. CBABC leads initiatives on behalf of the legal profession and in partnership with our justice system partners.

Through generous volunteer participation, CBABC operates a number of committees to implement programs and to serve the interests of the profession and the public. Committee Chairs are members of CBABC’s Provincial Council.

CBABC also receives requests from government, the Law Society of BC and other agencies for appointments to various boards and committees.
