The Edmonton Bar Association is a Society incorporated pursuant to the Societies Act to promote and afford opportunity for friendly and social activities of its members. The EBA provides a forum for its members to consider, discuss and take action in respect of all matters pertaining to the practice of law, the legal profession and the administration of justice in the City of Edmonton and elsewhere in the Province of Alberta.
Due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year's EBA Golf Tournament. While it remains a possibility that golf courses may be allowed to open fully before our scheduled tournament date of July 3, 2020, we have been advised that the ban of gatherings of more than 15 people is expected to last throughout the summer, making it impossible to host the tournament this year in a format that meets our goal of allowing members of the bar and judiciary to enjoy a social outing together. We look forward to having you join us for the 2021 EBA Golf Tournament.
Regarding our remaining events for 2020, we will provide updates in the near future, as we continue to take all steps to consider the health and safety of our legal community, as well as the community of this great city.
