The Uniform Law Conference of Canada (ULCC) offers a unique breadth of expertise by bringing together people from across the national legal community, including lawyers from the federal, provincial and territorial governments, law reform agencies, the private bar, the Canadian Bar Association, la Chambre des Notaires du Québec, legal academia and the judiciary. The ULCC addresses both the civil law and the criminal law and is bijural and bilingual in its work.

The ULCC had its first meeting in 1918 and provides independent and informed analysis and recommendations for the harmonisation and reform of laws in Canada. It is the oldest law reform body in the country and plays a key role in developing uniform legislation in civil and commercial matters and in proposing changes to the criminal law.

The ULCC holds a multi-day meeting each August, but its committees and working groups work throughout the year to review, analyse, and develop recommendations that are aimed at making the civil and criminal law more fair, clear, modern, and effective. The ULCC operates in two Sections: the Criminal Section and the Civil Section. Through the work of these Sections, it provides expert and non-partisan analysis for the consideration and use of Canadian provincial, territorial, and federal governments. Attendance at the ULCC’s annual meeting is by invitation only.
