Our Work


We focus our members’ influence in key areas of law – with government, regulators, the courts and media – in ways individual lawyers or firms cannot accomplish alone.

The Canadian Bar Association (CBA) is the only national association with a mandate to protect the professional and commercial interests of the legal profession and to promote the rule of law. As such, our voice is a powerful, credible one for legislative, regulatory and policy development in many areas of the law.

The Manitoba Bar Association (MBA) is a branch of the CBA and provides many opportunities to its members to network, improve their skills, further their professional education and keep abreast of current developments within the profession provincially and nationally.
