Updated: Oct 30, 2020

Join us online at CNAR 2020 for this exciting keynote address by The Honourable Judge Marion Buller, taking place on October 21.

CNAR's extremely compelling line up for October will stimulate thought and discussion around diversity and inclusion, with talks that focus on the role of regulators and systemic racism, as well as developing culturally responsive regulatory practices in truth and reconciliation.

We are also very pleased to announce the Honourable Judge Marion Buller as CNAR 2020’s next keynote speaker. Being of Cree heritage and a member of the Mistawasis First Nation in Saskatchewan, Marion Buller has been a leading force in Indigenous rights advocacy throughout her career.

In 2006, she was instrumental in the initiation of the First Nations Courts in British Columbia. Her most recent role will serve as a critical tool in the continued fight for the restoration of Indigenous rights and freedoms.

In June 2019, led by Marion Buller, the National Inquiry Into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls released its findings in a two-volume report, with 231 “Calls to Justice” directed at governments, institutions, social-service providers, industries, and Canadians as a whole. Judge Buller was appointed the first woman First Nations judge in British Columbia in 1994. Earlier this year, she was placed in the Top 25 Women of Influence. Judge Buller’s CNAR keynote address, “Unintended Barriers,” will examine assumptions, legislation bylaws, and policies to identify how your organization can reduce barriers to participation. The keynote is scheduled for October 21st and will also include a live video Q&A.
