At McLean Legal, we believe that community support means more than just providing legal advice to individual clients. We believe that good corporate stewardship means that we have a responsibility to make a positive impact in our community by supporting causes that speak to us and can help to make a difference.
Here are just some of the causes we have supported. We encourage everyone to join us – through small steps we all have it within us to make a big impact on those around us!
Ride for Sight Canada: Motorcycle riders all over Canada join together to raise funds to contribute to treatments and cures for diseases causing blindness. An annual event, all funds are raised on behalf of Fighting Blindness Canada.
The Archives hold the most extensive, authoritative history of the legal profession in Alberta, in addition to maintaining a library of rare and unique books and embarking upon an oral history project to record reminiscences of lawyers, judges and their legal assistants.
The 2016 Fort McMurray Fires were such a devastating blow to our Northern neighbours and, unfortunately, will require significant recovery efforts over the next few years as evacuees return to their city and undergo the arduous process of rebuilding. The Canadian Red Cross has been at the forefront of relief efforts and we have happily donated to that organization to assist them with their good works.
Back-to-school is an exciting time for children, but with the cost of school fees and supplies increasing every year, not every child is fortunate enough to return to school with all of the tools and supplies that they need to be successful both academically and in their relationships with their peers. We are proud to support Sleep Country’s excellent program of providing backpacks full of supplies for less fortunate children in our communities.
We are a proud supporter of Valour Place – a safe place where members of our military, RCMP, veterans, first responders and family members can have temporary accommodation while obtaining medical treatment in Edmonton. Please consider donating to this worthy cause!
