The recent decision of the Supreme Court of Canada in Carter has raised serious questions about its impact on persons with disabilities — many are concerned that the decision leaves them vulnerable.
Join the ARCH Disability Law Centre and the Law Society for a discussion about the Carter decision. The discussion will address what Carter means for persons with disabilities; explore the community’s concerns about the decision; and offer guidance on how community members can ensure that their voices are heard in any legislative process that develops, in order to guarantee that the interests of all persons with disabilities are recognized and protected.
