LEGISLATION AND LAW REFORM
The MBA Legislation and Reform Committee reviews all Bills introduced in the Manitoba Legislature and alerts branch Sections to pending legislation when applicable. The Committee provides support to Sections when making submissions to Standing Committees at the Legislature and ensures consistency with prior submissions and CBA policy. The Committee takes active steps to propose law reform by identifying the need for legislative change and coordinates lobbying efforts to the Manitoba government to effect change.
