Education Committee


The Education Committee continues to oversee the various and diverse SOAR offerings, as well as explore opportunities for the development and delivery of new and different courses.

We have courses for Order-in-Council appointees and staff of administrative tribunals and agencies.  Our registrants include representatives from all levels of government, agencies, regulators, commissions and the private sector.  Our faculty is drawn from academia, practitioners, adjudicators, counsel, registrars, IT specialists—and more.

Our aim is to reach as many of you as possible, with an array of workshops, lectures, seminars, webinars, even customized programming.  We can be talking heads, voices in your headphones, faces on your computer screens, Socratic instructors or interactive facilitators.

The Committee’s mandate is to provide nurture and nourishment for the administrative justice sector.  We do this for you, through you, with you.  We are always looking for new members to join the Committee, new faculty, new courses, new ideas.

Consider bringing your talent to our table!
