1:30 pm - 3:30 pm Gold Standard: The Role of Deference in Justice Abella’s Approach to Administrative Law

Deference to administrative decision-makers was a common theme in Justice Abella’s approach to administrative law – and sometimes a point of departure with her colleagues.

This panel discussion will delve into Justice Abella’s key administrative law jurisprudence, including Doré v Barreau du Québec, where Justice Abella developed a new administrative law approach for reviewing executive decisions that impact Charter rights; Newfoundland and Labrador Nurses’ Union v Newfoundland and Labrador (Treasury Board), which expanded on the notion of deference with respect to the role of reasons; Wilson v Atomic Energy Ltd, where she started a conversation about moving towards a single standard of review; and Canada (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration) v Vavilov, where Justice Abella and Justice Karakatsanis co-wrote a spirited concurrence that critiqued the majority’s approach and highlighted the importance of deference in judicial review. 

Justice Abella has been a driving force in the development of administrative law post-Dunsmuir. What does her departure from the bench mean for the future of administrative law?
