About Us


The Canadian Bar Association (CBA) is the leader and voice of Canada’s legal profession.

An essential ally and advocate for members of the legal profession, we promote fair justice systems, facilitate effective law reform, uphold equality in the legal profession and are devoted to eliminating discrimination.

We are also the premiere provider of quality training and information to members of the legal profession.

The Manitoba Bar Association, a branch of the CBA, represents some 1,400 lawyers, judges, notaries, law teachers and law students from across Manitoba. Approximately two-thirds of all practicing lawyers in Canada belong to the CBA.
