BCHA v City of Vancouver

In 2022, the City of Vancouver opened its inaugural council meetings with prayers from five religious representatives. The BCHA wrote to the City to ask them to commit to ensuring future meetings comply with the duty of neutrality. Counsel for the BCHA notified the City in April 2024 that the BCHA would be commencing legal action. On May 31, 2024, the City of Vancouver acknowledged that the prayers breached the duty of religious neutrality.

The BCHA was represented by Joel V. Payne of Allen / McMillan Litigation Counsel.
