On May 19, members of the firm participated in the Association du jeune Montréal annual fundraising event for Dans la rue and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. 500 people took part in the event, raising more than $105,000 to help young people at risk of homelessness, both in Montréal and abroad. Torys was a proud sponsor of the event.
"We are proud to help Dans la rue and the UNHCR make sure no young people are left behind", says Montréal associate Marie-Ève Gingras. "As a society, we cannot afford to let those who have their lives ahead of them end up in the streets with no support."
The money raised will help finance a shelter in Montréal, as well as to provide basic goods for refugees abroad.
