Tribunals can apply Charter rights, Supreme Court rules
“A landmark Supreme Court of Canada ruling has significantly widened the reach of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, handing a broad range of administrative tribunals the right to find Charter violations and create legal remedies.
In a 9-0 ruling on Friday, the court said that administrative tribunals – quasi-judicial bodies that hear cases involving everything from labour relations and school boards to human rights – are perfectly capable of applying the Charter in their fields of expertise.”
