As a law firm made up of licensees of the Law Society of Ontario, we have each adopted a personal Statement of Principles. Collectively, we confirm our belief in and commitment to the following overarching principles:
- We recognize and support the Law Society in its commitment to inclusive legal workplaces in Ontario, a reduction of barriers created by racism, sexism, unconscious bias and discrimination and better representation of Indigenous and racialized licensees in the legal professions in all legal workplaces and at all levels of seniority;
- We recognize and take seriously our special responsibility as members of the legal profession to protect the dignity of all individuals, and to respect and uphold human rights laws in force in Ontario;
- We support a commitment to reconciliation for Indigenous peoples and acknowledge that we are collectively responsible to support improved relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Ontario and Canada; and
- We are committed to our obligation to promote equality, diversity, anti-racism and inclusion generally and in our behaviour towards colleagues, employees, clients and the public.
We are committed to both the letter and spirit of human rights legislation.
