Decisions Of The Women’s Court Of Canada

TheCourt.ca is very pleased to reproduce the decisions of the Women’s Court of Canada. In 2004 this group of feminist / equality Charter activists, lawyers, and academics, decided to do something about what they saw as the sorry state of equality jurisprudence under s. 15. The solution, rewrite the key decisions of the Supreme Court of Canada in this important area. The first six judgments of the Women’s Court of Canada have now been published in Volume 18 of the Canadian Journal of Women and the Law.

Over the coming months TheCourt.ca will have the honour of reproducing these judgments and providing them with a permanent online home. If you scroll down, on the right you will find the logo of the Women’s Court of Canada. It is hyperlinked. In future, by clicking on that link, readers will be able to view each of the Women’s Court judgments previously published at TheCourt.ca.

If you are reading the judgments in html format then by scrolling down, to the bottom of the judgment, you will have the option of submitting a comment regarding the decision. The author(s) will be notified of your comment and will then have an opportunity to respond.
