Diversity & Inclusion

Stronger Together

Diverse and inclusive teams drive today’s successful businesses.

Our clients want to be represented by diverse teams. Our employees expect their workplace to accept, respect and support them, regardless of gender, gender identity, race, religion, disability or sexual orientation. As Canada’s Law Firm, we champion diversity and inclusion in our workplace and in the wider legal community.
