Objective: To conduct an evidence-based examination of prison crowding in Canada and measure the current conditions against appropriate legal standards.
This will be accomplished through reviewing the evolution of protections and international standards, examining current conditions in Canadian correctional institutions, comparing current conditions with existing legal standards and exploring remedies for violations of these standards. The final panel of the day will highlight and discuss some of the special challenges involved in representing prisoners.
The Symposium has received continuing professional development (CPD) accreditation from the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC), The Law Society of British Columbia, The Law Society of Saskatchewan, and Barreau du Québec.
