Bereskin & Parr is an Ally to the Black Community

June 3, 2020

Bereskin & Parr is, and has always been, committed to fostering a culture of respect, equity and belonging. Underlying this are the longstanding core values of our firm put in place by our founding partners Mr. Bereskin and Mr. Parr in 1965; treating all members of our firm, our clients, and our communities, with fairness and respect. This is of fundamental importance to us – we do not tolerate, condone or ignore expressions of racism or hate. Silence is not an option.

We have all likely seen the disturbing events unfolding in the U.S. over the past week involving shocking incidents of anti-Black racism. Coverage of these events and the resulting protests have been on the news. Canadians have also gathered to march in some of our communities in solidarity with protesters around the world.

Bereskin & Parr is an ally to the Black community and stands together against intolerance and racism. We will continue to ensure that our firm leads by example, treating all people with respect, safety and dignity, regardless of race.

Please join us in encouraging – through advocacy when possible and at all times by the means available to us – positive change in our communities and in society at large.

Managing Partner
