Yearly donation

This year, First Reference annual holiday donation is to LEAF. LEAF has been working since 1985 for the advancement of the equality of rights of Canadian women and girls. “LEAF focuses on litigation, law reform and public education, primarily the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, most notably section 15 and 28, to challenge laws, policies and practices that discriminate against women. Their cases have resulted in landmark victories in preventing violence against women, eliminating discrimination in the workplace, allowing access to reproductive freedoms, and providing better maternity benefits, better spousal support and a right to pay equity. Section 15 rights and the Charter in general have been tested, and strengthened, through the advocacy work of LEAF.”

Holiday break

We will be taking a break for the holidays. Please note that our offices and Ask the Editor service will be closed from Friday, December 22, 2017 at noon to Monday, January 1, 2018, inclusive.
