"They make you feel like you’re their only client." - Chambers Canada 2022

Diversity, equity and inclusion

Our history

A history of success

We’ve been providing counsel to entrepreneurs and industry leaders since 1905. We are proud to have been at the heart of some of the country's most significant matters for over a century. And we look forward to continuing to be a part of the fabric of Canadian commerce for another 100 years.

Our involvement

Commitment to community

We invest in our community just as we invest in our clients. Giving back to the province we’ve worked and lived in for over 100 years is an integral part of who we are.
