On March 2, 2015 Fasken and the Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC) announced a partnership where our Firm would support CPC as its official legal partner.
Fasken provides pro bono legal services to the CPC. We also work with them to advance the Paralympic movement by encouraging young people to get involved as athletes or volunteers, by creating welcoming environments for people with a disability and by working to develop a sustainable Paralympic system across Canada.
This sponsorship is part of our commitment to invest in communities across Canada by participating in charitable activities, serving on boards and committees and fundraising for charities.
In April of 2017, Marc-André Fabien, Ad.E., a Partner in the Montréal office, was elected president of CPC’s board of Directors. Mr. Fabien has been involved in Paralympic sports for over 20 years as a fundraiser, Board member, fan and supporter.
Along with legal services, our Firm raises funds for the Canadian Paralympic movement, as well as enhance awareness of the Paralympic brand among corporate Canada.
