The Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers (“CARL”) is proud to host our 8th annual conference. We encourage everyone who can make it to attend the conference in person in Toronto. To reduce technical interruptions, all presenters will be in Toronto. Refreshments will be served throughout the day and a catered lunch will be provided at the Toronto conference location.

There will also be viewing locations in Vancouver and Calgary connected by webcast and teleconference starting at 7:30 PST and concluding with a rebroadcasting of the morning presentation from 14:00-15:30 PST. You may also attend remotely by webcast.

Please join us as our colleagues share insights into the following issues:

o COUNSEL: The Mantle of Responsibility: Research on the quality of counsel (with Prof. Sean Rehaag and Sule Tomkinson)

o ID: Creating a level playing field

o ID: Exposing regional variances in detention
