Community Citizenship

Progressive and involved community citizens

Our people drive community involvement initiatives

Community volunteerism is a key element of life at Stikeman Elliott and a sense of social responsibility is deeply ingrained in the Ottawa office. We are involved at both the firm level and the personal level in a wide variety of causes and organizations that reflect the passions and interests of our people.

All firm members are encouraged to engage in our communities at the grassroots level and to support charities and groups that matter to them personally.

An active pro bono program

Students and lawyers in Ottawa participate in a multi-faceted pro bono program that puts our legal expertise to work helping disadvantaged individuals and groups, or advancing social justice causes.

Serious about our green initiatives

A commitment to environmental sustainability is not a recent trend for us. Over the years, we have made real changes in order to reduce Stikeman Elliott’s environmental impact. Since 2008, we have reduced our environmental footprint by 13%, and each year we challenge ourselves to improve on our previous benchmarks.
