Understanding The Evolution of the Ontario SPCA Act
Animal Law | 5:15 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us for an opportunity to network and learn from a panel of experienced professionals as they discuss the latest issues, proposed legislative amendments and case law affecting the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act.

  • Hear about what's happening with the oversight of the Ontario SPCA and Frank Klees' previous Private Member's Resolution
  • Explore an ethical perspective of the statute
  • Review and comply with the offence provisions
  • Assess the impact of prosecutions under the Ontario SPCA Act.

Aside from animal law content, this program will also be relevant to practitioners in the areas of administrative, criminal and quasi-criminal, and environmental law, as well as of interest to academics, investigators, and students in related disciplines. Don't miss this valuable and timely discussion!
