Administrative Litigation

Our services extend to many areas of administrative law, including the following:

Judicial reviews, board reviews, appeals, public commissions/inquiries

We represent applicants, appellants, and respondents before a range of tribunals including the recently created B.C. Health Professions Review Board. See “Suite210“, our firm’s law blog for commentary on administrative and professional regulatory cases, and on decisions of the Health Professions Review Board. Also see “Professional Regulation and Discipline“, one of our focus areas, to read about our list of services for regulators and professionals.

Our firm also represents participants in public commissions and large scale administrative review processes. In 2018, we are looking forward to representing several indigenous communities in the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. In 2014 and 2015 we represented a First Nation and a number of landowners in the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipeline regulatory review.  In 2012 and 2013, we represented First Nations before the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline Joint Review Panel and now in the judicial reviews of the National Energy Board’s decisions. In 2010 and 2011 Ng Ariss Fong in conjunction with Songbird Law Corporation represented a First Nation in the Cohen Commission on the Inquiry into the Decline of Fraser River Sockeye Salmon. In 2010, we represented Community Legal Assistance Society in the Public Commission on Legal Aid.

Ng Ariss Fong contributed to the writing of the BC Continuing Legal Education’s publication, “BC Administrative Law Practice Manual”.

Human Rights

We represent complainants and respondents in all areas of discrimination under the BC Human Rights Code. Our firm has a specific interest in cases involving race, gender, or sexual orientation discrimination, and welcome inquiries for reduced fee or pro bono services in those areas.
