A Holiday Message from our CEO, Dave Leonard


As we come together to celebrate the end of the year, I’d like to extend my warmest wishes to you and your loved ones and share some hopeful reflections on what the New Year may bring us.

Events of the past year have presented enormous hardship for many people around the world. Here at home, economic uncertainty is causing worry for the future. In the face of hardship and uncertainty, it’s important to remain grateful for the small sparks of joy in our lives: a chance meeting with an old friend; an uplifting conversation with a mentor; a victory, big or small, that reminds us of the value of hard work and dedication. These events help us to stay optimistic for the future and can energize us when we take the time to appreciate them.

As I look towards the New Year, I’m drawing inspiration from these small but significant events. I am optimistic for what we can accomplish when we work together. Our charitable work is making a difference for those in need in our communities across Canada. You can visit our Inclusion Now page to learn more about what we’re doing to help strengthen the places where we live and work and some of the exciting programs we look forward to continuing in the year ahead.

On behalf of all of us at McCarthy Tétrault – in Canada, the U.S., and the U.K. – I wish you a safe and happy holiday season filled with joy and optimism.
