This article charts the shift in the Supreme Court of Canada's interpretation of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms' guarantee of freedom of association in the context of claims by trade unions for protection of their collective bargaining rights. It places this shift in Canadian Charter jurisprudence in the broader context of neo-liberal politics and globalization, and it considers the extent to which the Supreme Court, along with the International Labour Organization, can be understood as responding to the challenge to develop new norms of governance.
