NCCM at the Supreme Court of Canada in Bombardier case

The National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) is pleased to announce that it is intervening before the Supreme Court of Canada (SCC) in a major human rights case: Commission des droits de la personne et des droits de la jeunesse, et al. v. Bombardier Inc. (Bombardier Aerospace Training Center), et al.  In this intervention, the NCCM has partnered with the Canadian Muslim Lawyers Association (CMLA) to make joint submissions.

In October 2014, the SCC granted the NCCM and CMLA “intervener status” in the Bombardier case, along with other interested parties.  Interveners are allowed to submit written arguments and may be granted leave to present oral arguments to the Court during the case’s hearing. The Bombardier case is the NCCM’s fourth intervention at the SCC on landmark human rights & civil liberties matters.

You can watch the NCCM’s oral arguments at the Supreme Court of Canada in the Bombardier case.
