Interpreting Statutes I – Brochure

Developed and presented by David Elliott, arbitrator and legislative draftsperson, this two-day workshop introduces a method for interpreting legislation and regulations. The method, based on the Supreme Court of Canada’s modern approach to interpretation, combines theory with practice, giving participants a sound foundation to tackle interpretation questions. The workshop will include: • what you need to know before starting to interpret legislation, • how to unravel complicated text, and • a template for tackling the interpretation of legislation.
