The Constitution is the foundation for the laws and rules that govern Canada. It defines the authority of institutions and branches of government. With a growing focus on constitutional concerns, such as the division of power of parliament and legislatures, and matters relating to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, it is vital for individuals and businesses in all sectors to properly manage constitutional issues as well as their significant and far-reaching effects.
At McLennan Ross, we have the skilled team necessary to guide our clients through constitutional and Charter issues. We possess detailed knowledge of the unique processes involved. We help those operating in Canada to navigate the increasing number of administrative tribunals and regulatory bodies, as well as complex municipal, provincial, and federal legislation.
