The Canadian Bar Association passed a motion at its annual general meeting defining diversity after a multi-year consultation.
“This definition will provide almost like a GPS, what our basic co-ordinates are in terms of addressing diversity. But I personally feel there’s a lot to be done yet,” Kamaljit Lehal told Legal Feeds. Lehal moved the resolution yesterday at the AGM in Ottawa while speaking by video conference from Vancouver.
The motion was passed without debate. The same motion had failed to pass in 2018 because the AGM had run out of time before members could vote.
