Uniform Law Conference of Canada was created with the object of promoting uniformity of legislation throughout Canada in areas of the law where that is desirable. It does this through the development of model legislation that it recommends for adoption by the provinces and territories. The conference, which meets annually, is comprised of delegates appointed by the provinces and territories. Provincial delegations typically consist of legal drafters, the personnel of law reform bodies and practising lawyers. Between meetings the work of the conference is carried on by correspondence among the delegates and through ad hoc
committees. Since its inception in 1918 the conference has promulgated more than 100 uniform acts and many of these have been revised on numerous occasions as changing circumstances required.
