About Us


The Canadian Bar Association (CBA) is the leader and voice of Canada’s legal profession.

An essential ally and advocate for members of the legal profession, we promote fair justice systems, facilitate effective law reform, uphold equality in the legal profession and are devoted to eliminating discrimination.

We are also the premiere provider of quality training and information to members of the legal profession.

The Nova Scotia Branch offers a two-day Mid-Winter Conference and three other one-day conferences throughout the year.

Our branch represents some 1,300 lawyers, judges, notaries, law teachers and law students from across the province.  Approximately two-thirds of all practicing lawyers in Canada belong to the CBA.
