Torys recognized for pro bono work for mental health organizations

November 18, 2008

Torys was honored to receive recognition from the Global Business and Economic Roundtable on Mental Health for our longstanding pro bono legal work for the Canadian Mental Health Association. Torys was presented with a plaque with the following message:

On the occasion of the 4th U.S.-Canada Forum on Mental Health and Productivity, we salute and we thank the distinguished Canadian international law firm, Torys LLP, for its services to the mental health of Canadians.

Torys' commitment to this cause has spanned several generations of the firm's leadership. Founder John S.D. Tory wrote the early chapters of this history through the firm's pro bono legal work for the Canadian Mental Health Association.

2008 is the 10th Anniversary of the Global Business and Economic Roundtable on Addiction and Mental Health and for these past ten years the Roundtable has drawn on this remarkable legacy of service. Torys has generously provided us with pro bono legal and corporate services and participated in the Roundtable's governance.

In short, Torys has walked with the Roundtable every step of the way in our efforts to promote mental health as an economic asset and social calling. For this, we are deeply grateful.

The following individuals graciously presented the plaque:

  • Mr. Justice Edward F. Ormston, Chairman of the 4th US/Canada Forum on Mental Health and Productivity
  • Honourable Michael Kirby, Chairman of the Mental Health Commission of Canada
  • Bill Wilkerson, Co-Founder, Chairman and CEO, Global Business and Economic Roundtable on Mental Health
