The 2017 Asper Centre Constitutional Roundtable Series presents a
Constitutional Law Symposium for Canada’s Sesquicentennial
The David Asper Centre for Constitutional Rights’ Constitutional Roundtable Series are annual lunchtime discussion forums that provide an opportunity to consider developments in Canadian constitutional theory and practice as well as the emerging field of comparative constitutional law in relation to Canada. This year, to mark Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation, our Constitutional Roundtable series theme has focused on the development of Canada’s constitutional and human rights from the British North America Act to the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and provides an analysis of constitutional litigation throughout Canada’s history.
On Friday October 20, 2017, the Asper Centre Constitutional Roundtable Series was pleased to present a one-day Constitutional Law Symposium, for Canada’s Sesquicentennial, with a special keynote address delivered by Professor John Borrows, Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Law, Nexen Chair in Indigenous Leadership, University of Victoria.
