BC Law Institute to Study ‘Family Status’ in Human Rights

May 30, 2011

The BC Law Institute recently announced a new research project to study the scope and meaning of “family status” under the BC Human Rights Code.

Acknowledging the “recent confusing jurisprudence and the changing landscape of the family”, the BC Family Status Legal Research Project will produce a discussion paper that reviews legislation and jurisprudence relating to family status ground (a project backgrounder is available). The paper will be published in June 2012, with the opportunity to comment on the draft paper in late fall 2011.

The project is being funded by the Law Foundation of British Columbia and supported by volunteer project advisers from the legal community.
