Governing Bodies

In Canada, the legal profession is regulated, licensed and disciplined by each province and territory, with each province and territory governed by their own respective law society.

The Federation of Law Societies of Canada (“FLSC”) leads the development of high national standards of regulation to ensure that all Canadians are served by a competent, honourable and independent legal profession. In addition, the legal profession is represented by the Canadian Bar Association (“CBA”) nationally, which has branches in every province and territory in Canada. The CBA is a professional voluntary organization that advocates for all its members.
