Supreme Court Hearings - Elizabeth Bernard v. Attorney General of Canada, et al.


Elizabeth Bernard v. Attorney General of Canada, et al. (November 4, 2013)

The focus in this case are issues related to privacy law and labour relations. The appellant is an employee of the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). The Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada is the bargaining agent for the CRA. The appellant has declined to join the Union and seeks to prevent CRA from disclosing her home contact information to the Union. The appellant filed an application for judicial review of a consent order that authorized the disclosure of her home contact information to the union. The Federal Court of Appeal referred the matter to the Public Service Labour Relations Board. The Public Service Labour Relations Board refused to consider the appellant's Charter argument. The Board held that disclosure of her home contact information was authorized by the Privacy Act.
