Abstract

The Conference of Commissioners on Uniformity of Legislation in Canada, part-progeny of the Canadian Bar Association, has prepared and adopted several model statutes containing private international law rules which most of the provinces have voluntarily incorporated into their own legislation. Unfortunately, Canada’s record respecting the adoption of uniform laws on the international level is not as laudable. The time has come for Canadian participation in uniformity of legislation in the field of private international law. J.G. Castel examines the structure and objectives of the Hague Conference on Private International Law, the techniques it uses to achieve uniformity, its accomplishments to date, and what Canada’s future participation will mean for the federation.
