Synopsis

Since BC declared a state of emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, BC Tribunals have continued to provide services to the public by adapting and pivoting their standard practices and procedures. Our speakers will make observations on the impacts they have seen in their respective tribunals and share other pertinent information you can use to assist your clients. Guest speakers will discuss some of the core and fundamental transitions made to adapt to COVID, but also some of the trends that have developed since COVID-19, and trends that have developed since the start of the pandemic.
