Letter Writing Campaign

For too long our courts have lacked diversity. The University of Ottawa Association of Women and the Law needs your help to change this. 

We are establishing a letter writing campaign where anyone can have a voice to demand that the next appointments to Canada’s highest court come from diverse backgrounds. To make things easier for you, we have created a template that provides you with the best tips to (quickly!) write an effective letter. 

Things will not change unless we act. Use your voice to advocate for a Supreme Court that reflects our society. 

You can find a sample letter here: 

If you have any feedback or suggestions to improve this campaign, please reach out to any member of the UOAWL or at

Depuis trop longtemps, nos tribunaux souffrent d’un manque de diversité. L’Association Femmes et Droit de l’Université d’Ottawa a besoin de votre aide pour remédier à ce problème. 

Nous mettons sur pied une campagne de rédaction de lettres où toute personne peut s’exprimer pour exiger que les prochaines nominations à la plus haute cour du Canada proviennent de milieux diversifiés. Pour vous faciliter la tâche, nous avons créé un modèle qui vous donne les meilleurs conseils pour rédiger (rapidement !) une lettre efficace. 

Les choses ne changeront pas si nous n’agissons pas. Servez-vous de votre voix pour plaider en faveur d’une Cour suprême qui reflète notre société. 

Vous trouverez le modèle ci-joint.
