Exploring the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities for Practitioners 

Nov. 23, 2020

OBA Elder Law PROGRAM | 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM (ET)

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) promotes the rights of persons with disabilities, including the right to make their own decisions. Canada ratified the CRPD in March 2010, subject to a reservation regarding Article 12. Join us to explore the impact of the CRPD in Ontario and the opportunities for utilizing it to better represent and access justice for persons with disabilities. Our expert panel will get you up to speed on:

  • Key provisions of the CRPD
  • How the CRPD has been implemented domestically in Ontario
  • The tension between supported decision making and substitute decision making: Understanding Canada’s reservation on Article 12
  • Practical strategies for incorporating the CRPD and its concepts in your practice to provide greater access to justice for persons with disabilities
