Interview with CBA President Brad Regehr – CBA National

The new CBA president discusses his priorities for the year ahead, the impact of the pandemic on the legal profession, and the CBA’s role in advancing reconciliation.

CBA National: It must be an unusual challenge for you to assume the presidency during this period, with limited travel and in-person meetings moving online. How do you plan on communicating with members during your mandate?

Brad Regehr: I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I won’t be travelling between now and the end of the year, and we’ll have to see what happens during the winter and spring in terms of what’s possible. In the meantime, we’re looking at several ways we can reach members. I’ll be speaking at the Nova Scotia branch AGM, virtually, and the same way at the Yukon AGM. I’m hoping that things get better at some point toward the end of my presidency, allowing me to do some visits and interact with our members in person. I’ll also be working on a podcast series focusing on the Truth and Reconciliation report and the CBA’s initiatives to help support its calls to action. This is near and dear to me, with my grandfather having gone to residential schools.
