Law societies in Canada’s Prairie provinces are joining hands to charge ahead toward entity regulation in 2016.
“We are a large geographic country with a small population and, compared to other jurisdictions where regulatory reform is occurring, we have relatively few lawyers. This reality means that our resources are limited and it is strategically wise to share them,” the law societies said in the consultation paper.
They added: “It is also our view that a diversity of perspectives from different jurisdictions will achieve better, more effective outcomes. For these reasons, the law societies of Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan are doing this work together. We are also keeping a close eye on developments across the country, particularly in Nova Scotia, Ontario and British Columbia where work is ongoing.”
