RavenLaw is pleased to announce that one of its partners, Wassim Garzouzi, has been unanimously appointed as the President of the Canadian Association of Labour Lawyers (CALL) as of July 30, 2020. CALL is a voluntary organization comprised of approximately 600 lawyers who represent the labour movement across Canada. The Association endeavours to protect and advance the interests of workers in the forums where labour law is made and administered. Wassim’s presidency marks the first time that a Black, Indigenous, or Person of Colour has been named to the CALL executive since its founding in the late 1980s.
Wassim, who was previously elected to the role Regional Vice-President (Ontario), has been a member of CALL Council since 2016.
Congratulations to Wassim on his historic appointment!
