Aikins commits to donation for Canadian Museum for Human Rights

The partners of Aikins believe in the importance of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights for all of Canada, and particularly for Winnipeg. The firm has committed a sizable donation towards the creation of the CMHR, and we look forward to 2013 when the museum doors open and its impact and potential to change the world truly begin to unfold.

 

United Way

Our Firm has a reputation for having one of the most active campaigns for United Way, and we have been recognized through Spirit Awards and Campaign Chair Awards celebrating outstanding corporate citizenship.

Aikins is proud to have a participation rate of 75 per cent and a dedicated committee made up of both lawyers and staff. We have volunteered in the United Way’s Day of Caring and always look to new and innovative ways of bolstering our commitment to this important organization.
 

A Long Tradition of Commitment

Many of our lawyers have served as lecturers on legal subjects for the following institutions:

  • University of Manitoba

Our firm is a long standing and active supporter of the Canadian Bar Association (founded by Sir James Aikins in 1914) and a number of our lawyers also belong to the International Bar Association, and are International Associate members of the American Bar Association. As well, many of our lawyers are involved in the Law Society of Manitoba, the governing body of the legal profession in Manitoba.
