The 35th Annual CCAT Symposium is now SOLD OUT and registration has closed. 

CCAT’s 35th Annual Symposium, Common Challenges, Diverse Solutions: Administrative Justice in a World of Change, the administrative justice community’s premier event, will take place at the Hotel Bonaventure Montreal in spectacular Montreal, QC, May 26-28, 2019. 

A dynamic planning team, led by Symposium Co-chairs Andrée Gosselin, Administrative Judge, Tribunal administratif du travail, Jennifer Khurana, Vice-Chairperson, General Division, Employment Insurance Section, Social Security Tribunal of Canada, Scott Streiner, Chair and Chief Executive Officer, Canadian Transportation Agency, and Sylvie Sequin, Commissioner, Régie du bâtiment du Québec, is creating an exciting symposium relevant to our work and the issues facing administrative decision-makers, regulators and staff.
This Symposium will bring together 300+ individuals from the administrative justice community from all parts of Canada and internationally. 
The program will feature keynote presentations by thought leaders as well as workshops and roundtables focussed on providing new strategies and practical skills that will increase our effectiveness and help us achieve excellence. Among the topics to be discussed are:
  • Exploring the Challenges of Truth, Reconciliation, and International Justice
  • Application of International Conventions in decision-making: A Canadian and International perspective
  • The New Reasonable Person
  • Access to justice for persons with disabilities and others from historically disadvantaged groups, particularly when self-represented
  • Administrative Law Update
  • Administrative Tribunals and Mediation: at the forefront of innovation
  • Inquisitorial versus adversarial adjudication: what we can learn from each other
  • How long is the arm in "arm's-length"? Delineating and protecting tribunal independence
  • Innovative uses of technology to deliver administrative justice more efficiently
  • Mental Health – Building Resilience in Dealing with the Stressors of the Job
  • A Watchful Eye on Administrative Justice since 1998
  • Assessing the credibility of witnesses: divination or science?
  • Navigating the grey zones: Ethical challenges and the delivery of administrative justice
From arrival to departure, you'll be immersed in dialogue and transformative ideas with innovative leaders and fellow learners.

The Symposium would not be complete without networking events offering you time to connect with other high performers in the administrative justice community, or reconnect with those you only “speak” to digitally!

Mark your calendars and join us at the Hotel Bonaventure Montreal, May 26-28, 2019.
