CBABC actively develops policy and law reform by responding to regulatory and government initiatives and lobbying for issues important to our members.

We engage the BC legislature through written submissions, committee appearances and informal meetings with government, regulatory bodies, industry stakeholders and the business community. 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 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.

Interested in volunteering?
CBABC committee appointments take place in May-June; however, vacancies often occur throughout the year. Please complete the Committee Volunteer Form if you would like to be considered.
