Top Five 2011: Ontario (Attorney General) v Fraser

Each year at OJEN’s Toronto Summer Law Institute, a judge from the Court of Appeal for Ontario identifies five cases that are of significance in the educational setting. This summary, based on these comments and observations, is appropriate for discussion and debate in the classroom setting.

Ontario (Attorney General) v Fraser, 2011 SCC 20, [2011] 2 SCR 3

The collective bargaining laws governing farm workers in Ontario have been the subject of much debate and litigation since the enactment of the Charter.  In this case, the Supreme Court of Canada (SCC) ruled that the limited rights of agricultural workers to collective bargaining do not violate their right to freedom of association under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The full decision is available here.
