TBLA Fall Conference

2021 TBLA Virtual Fall Conference – OCTOBER 27 & 28

This year our Fall Conference was held virtually on October 27th & 28th, with the assistance of the OBA for registration and delivery. With the rising covid cases in Ontario, the Committee felt it was best to move the programs online.  Over the two days, seven programs were delivered (Civil, Corporate, Criminal, Family, Estates, Real Estate and Labour)!  Please note that the Labour programs consisted of LSO CPD replays of the Six-Minute Employment Lawyer and the Six-Minute Labour Lawyer.   All of the programs were available to TBLA members free of charge!  Non-members who registered were invoiced after registering for a fee of  $50.00 plus HST per program. 

We had very interesting keynote speakers at lunch on both days (CPD credits of  45 min EDI each!)

  • October 27th, 12:30 pm – 1:15 pm – Professor Tenille Brown, Bora Laskin Faculty of Law, Lakehead University spoke on “Restoule v. Canada (Attorney General) 2018 ONSC 7701: S.35 Aboriginal Treaty Law in Northern Ontario”
  • October 28th, 12:30 pm – 1:15 pm – Mr. Donald E. Worme, Q.C., I.P.C, Semaganis Worme Lombard LLP spoke on “The Current Historic Robinson Treaties litigation: the upholding of treaty promises and renewal of treaty relationships”.
