Bakerlaw is pleased to announce that it has received encouraging news regarding the reinstatement of the Court Challenges Program of Canada (CCPC). Linda Jones, Chair of the Board of Directors of CCPC, has recently announced that the Liberal Government appears to be making progress on their election promise to renew funding to the CCPC.

The Court Challenges Program of Canada is a non-profit organization which provides financial assistance for cases which aim to advance equality and language rights. To learn more about the program, visit its website (link).
Bakerlaw is hopeful that the CCPC’s funding will be restored. We already have important human rights cases lined up but these require funding assistance given the magnitude and scope of the issues.
