Uphold the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms
Say NO to religious Arbitration in Ontario

We have come together out of concern for the application of any religious laws in family matters using the Arbitration Act in Ontario, pursuant to Marion Boyd's report entitled 'Protecting Choice, Promoting Inclusion'.

Notwithstanding Ms Boyd's assurances to the contrary, we are shocked by the possibility of the erosion of equality rights as guaranteed in Sections 15 and 28, of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Our statement reflects a common position
- That the recommendations advanced in the above report sanction the erosion of women's equality rights under the laws of Ontario.
- That the Ontario Arbitration Act was never designed to accommodate family matters but was conceived of as a vehicle for commercial disputes. Now stretched to this purpose, even with Ms. Boyd's "safeguards", it would effectively put at risk decades of legal reform in keeping with an equality and equal rights framework.

We are diverse organizations and individuals, and we come together for one purpose. We want to make sure that:
Exclusive use of Canadian family law legislation be made for the resolution of family disputes regardless of faith, ethnicity and culture of our people.
No religious arbitration and/or any principles, that would undermine the equality guarantees of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms in the resolution of family matters.
