" 90th Anniversary of the Statute of Westminster" by Shawn Wade

The Statute of Westminster is a British law that was passed on 11 December 1931. It was Canada’s all-but-final achievement of independence from Britain. It enacted recommendations from the Balfour Report of 1926, which had declared that Britain and its Dominions were constitutionally “equal in status.” The Statute of Westminster gave Canada and the other Commonwealth Dominions legislative equality with Britain. They now had full legal freedom except in areas of their choosing. The Statute also clarified the powers of Canada’s Parliament and those of the other Dominions.

Shawn M. Wade obtained his BA (1st Class Honours) in History from Simon Fraser University and Bachelor of Laws and Master of Laws from UBC. Shawn is a dedicated Chief Executive, Army Officer and Youth Development leader with over 3 decades of voluntary community service experience. Shawn is currently the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Royal Commonwealth Society, Mainland of British Columbia Branch (RCS). Shawn’s interest in the Commonwealth began at an early age, and was motivated by his life-long interest in history.

Shawn is a proud receipient of the 2018 Sovereign’s Medal for Volunteers
