Practice Description - Jay is an experienced mediator, investigator and adjudicator, having mediated and adjudicated hundreds of cases involving human rights, employment, education, child welfare, disability and mental health issues. She is available to mediate and investigate human rights, workplace and education matters in a fair, sensitive and effective way.
Background - In addition to her practice as a workplace mediator and investigator, Jay is currently an assessor under the Canadian Armed Forces sexual misconduct class action settlement and an adjudicator with the Law Society Tribunal where she hears capacity, misconduct and other cases involving lawyers and paralegals. In March 2021, Jay was also appointed as a member of the Northwest Territories Human Rights Adjudication Panel.

From 2008 to 2018, Jay was a Vice-chair with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario (HRTO). During part of that time, she was cross-appointed to the Child and Family Services Review Board (CFSRB) and Custody Review Board (CRB) as a Vice-chair and to the Special Education Tribunal (OSET) as a member.

In those roles, she represented clients, trained and mentored law students and worked on law reform initiatives to increase access to justice for low-income populations.
