Max Bell School Associate Professor Pearl Eliadis, has been selected to the Official Language Rights Expert Panel of the federal Government’s Court Challenges Program (CCP).
The objective of the CCP is to provide financial support to Canadians to bring before the courts test cases of national significance that aim to clarify and assert certain constitutional and quasi-constitutional official language rights and human rights.
Experts are named by Ministerial appointments through the Government of Canada. The CCP is administrated by the Official Languages and Bilingualism Institute (OLBI) of the Faculty of Arts of the University of Ottawa.
Prof. Eliadis is the only anglophone from Quebec appointed to the panel.
