Environmental Law

Many of the largest environmental battles in Canada’s history have been fought in front of a judge and gavel. From the Canadian constitution and international commitments to local bylaws, environmental law is shaping the future of Canada’s wilderness, oceans, suburbs, farmland and cities.
