Update #5: Treasury Board's New Reliability Screening Policy
On September 22, 2015, the Federal Court issued its decision on the Institute's motion for an injunction to prevent the Treasury Board from implementing its Security Screening Policy. The court has dismissed the Institute's motion finding that evidence of irreparable harm had not been established. To grant an injunction, the Court must be satisfied that a serious issue has been raised, that the applicant will suffer irreparable harm if the injunction is not granted and that the balance of convenience favours the applicant. Although the court was satisfied that the motion for the injunction did raise serious issues, it was not satisfied that if the injunction was not granted, irreparable harm would be caused.
