2022 BCCAT Education Conference:

Practical Skills For A Modern Administrative Law World


This year, BCCAT’s conference will be delivered virtually on October 19th from 9:30am to 4:30pm and October 20th from 8:15am to 12:30pm. We are so very pleased that the first day of the conference will be broadcast from Tsawwassen First Nation.

We are thrilled to announce that Shannon Salter, Deputy Attorney General of BC and Justice Lorne Sossin of the Ontario Court of Appeal will be attending this year’s conference as keynote speakers.

With unique and thought-provoking keynotes and speakers, this year’s day and a half conference will provide something valuable for everyone. Dayna Cornwall will present practical strategies and best practices for effective working relationships with self-represented litigants; Mary Childs and Andrew Bak will reflect on governance and decision-making at Tsawwassen First Nation; Kate Phipps and Rob Grant will deliver a lively discussion on the purpose and extent of tribunal secrecy; and Myrna McCallum will invite you to reflect on your role in the justice sector through a healing lens.

Many other practical sessions make this a conference you won’t want to miss. Caroline Mandell will provide coaching on the decision-making process and offer practical strategies; Halie Kwanxwa’loga Bruce will provide guidance for putting trauma-informed principles into practice; Kay Scorer will provide practical advice and best practices for tribunals and boards with respect to gender inclusivity; and of course, no BCCAT conference would be complete without our annual case law update that will be provided this year by Meera Bennett and Robert Danay.  

For further details, please access the agenda directly below.

BC lawyers will be able to claim 9 hours of accredited CPD upon completion of the conference.

Registration is live! Don't miss BCCAT's new Seat Saver Rate that will run until September 15th.
