Favourite Quote: There are so many to pick from. There are of course the usual serious, profound, uplifting and well trodden ones. So, I tend to like the less known and perhaps slightly irreverent ones. The slightly off the wall ones if you like. There Winston Churchill clearly had the edge. As a political scientist this is one of my favourites, for its directness and perhaps some underlying truth: “Diplomacy is the art of[...]

Re-Cap and Reflection

2018 marked the 20 year celebration for the Foundation of Administrative Justice (FOAJ)! What started in 1998 as four courses in the province of Alberta has exponentially grown to a Canada-wide organization that now offers more than 45 courses with over 5,000 individuals trained. As we begin 2019, we want to take a moment and reflect on the success of the past year and look ahead to the exciting future for the FOAJ. It all began in 1998 when the Council of Canadian Administrative Tribunals organized a “Train the Trainer” for the Prairie Provinces (AB, SK, MB) so those provinces[...]

Tribunals also reach into the private sector through appeal and discipline committees for professional organizations, sports groups, unions, and other associations. Perhaps your business has had to take out a liquor[...]
