The CCCA Ontario Chapter Wins 2015 CCCA Professional Contribution Award

  • April 17, 2015

Toronto – The Canadian Bar Association’s (CBA) Canadian Corporate Counsel Association (CCCA) has announced that the CCCA Ontario Chapter is the winner of the 2015 CCCA Professional Contribution Award.

The award recognizes an individual or group that raises the profile of the CCCA in the professional community. It is being given to the members of the CCCA Ontario Chapter for showcasing the contributions of the in-house profession and the CCCA within the Canadian legal and business landscape. Through their combined efforts, the members of the Ontario Chapter have repeatedly offered professional development programs and participated in ongoing legislative initiatives.

More recently, in 2012 they established the Annual Award of Excellence, recognizing the important work of in-house counsel in Ontario, and in 2013, when the GTA Chapter expanded to include all of Ontario, volunteers worked hard to re-engage members in Ottawa and northern Ontario.

The Professional Contribution Award will be presented to the Ontario Chapter during the CCCA’s Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony on Sunday evening, April 19, 2015 in Toronto. This event is part of the 2015 CCCA National Conference.
