Freedom of Association in Canada

  • K. D. Ewing


The author examines extensively, the case of Lavigne v. Ontario Public Service Employees' Union which deals with the power of a trade union to support without restriction, political and ideological causes unrelated to collective bargaining. Involved in this analysis is a discussion of the Charter right under s. 2, freedom of association, and whether or not this right would also include the freedom not to associate. The author then looks at the potential political implications of the Lavigne decision.
