Mitch Frazer receives Order of Ontario

Chair of the firm’s Pensions and Employment practice Mitch Frazer has been appointed to the Order of Ontario for 2021. 

One of 24 appointees for 2021, Mitch receives the highest civilian honour in the province of Ontario not only for his work in pensions law but also for his dedication to helping others. Mitch—who is the Chancellor of Ontario Tech University—also co-founded the National Institute on Ageing at Toronto Metropolitan University.

This short tribute to Mitch's contributions was also part of the Province's announcement.

“Mitch Frazer may be one of Canada’s foremost experts on pension law, but his forté is helping others. He founded the National Institute on Ageing “to make Canada the best place to grow up and grow old.” His knack for problem-solving has helped to raise much-needed funds for many universities, hospitals, and cultural institutions.”

The Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario and Chancellor of the Order of Ontario, congratulated the appointees on this monumental achievement.

“Their service to our province is a reminder to all of us fortunate enough to call Ontario home, that the fabric of society is knit together by good deeds and the dedication of individuals. May their accomplishments be an inspiration and example for many to follow.”
