This site is being decommissioned. To view the new website go to ulcc-chlc.ca .
ULCC was founded in 1918 to harmonize the laws of the provinces and territories of Canada, and where appropriate the federal laws as well. The Uniform Law Conference of Canada also makes recommendations for changes to federal criminal legislation based on identified deficiencies, defects or gaps in the existing law, or based on problems created by judicial interpretation of existing law.
This site sets out the history and operation of the Conference in some detail. Most of the site is dedicated to explaining and furthering the work of the Conference. It describes the activities of the Criminal Section and the Civil Section, with emphasis on the comprehensive and long-range ambitions of the Commercial Law Strategy. ULCC's successes with laws affecting electronic communications are also featured.
The site contains study papers, discussion documents, and a significant selection of uniform statutes which the Conference recommends for enactment by the provinces, territories, and sometimes the federal government.
The Proceedings since the foundation of the Conference are available for the convenience of those without ready access to the printed volumes. ULCC expresses its gratitude to the Department of Justice (Canada) for its support in building this site.
