Rebeka Breder

Founder, Breder Law, Vancouver

Rebeka Breder’s passion for animal protection started at an early age. She is now a trailblazer in developing animal law in Canada and is one of the very few lawyers in the country to have an exclusive animal law private practice. In the last 18 months, Breder has taken on a ground-breaking case for the Canadian Horse Defence Coalition in which it is suing the Canadian federal government over the way it transports horses for slaughter; it is the first time an animal protection group has sued the government over the transportation of animals in Canada. She has also co-organized the first Canadian CBA/ABA animal law conference, where speakers and guests from across Canada and the U.S. attended. In that same time, Breder has given more than a dozen animal law lectures internationally. Breder is also a founder of the UBC Animal Law course, for which she was previously an adjunct professor. She also founded the first animal law section of the Canadian Bar Association in Canada and is the founder and current chairwoman of the animal law section, B.C. Branch.
