Federal Report on Private International Law 1996


In private international law, the work of the Department of Justice and particularly of the newly created Public Law Policy Section, as successor to the Constitutional and International Law Section, is directed at furthering the interests of Canadians in the international community. To assist us in carrying out that mandate effectively, we appreciate the assistance of the Advisory Group and the Uniform Law Conference.

In particular, the Uniform Law Conference plays an important role on the harmonization of private law by drafting uniform acts that facilitate the implementation in Canada of private international law conventions.

This year we would like to request the Uniform Law Conference in considering the drafting of a uniform act for the implementation of ICSID as well as that of the Canada-France Convention.
