Canada Awards for ExcellenceRecipient Profile
Law Society of Ontario, Corporate Services Division
2018 Silver Recipient
Excellence, Innovation and Wellness
The Law Society of Ontario regulates Ontario’s legal professions in the public interest. Its Corporate Services division provides a wide range of services to both internal and external Law Society clients. Departments include Facilities and Planning, Catering, Client Service Centre, Human Resources, Corporate Resource & Training Centre and Information Technologies.
The division’s excellence journey began nearly 20 years ago, following the Law Society’s creation of a centralized Client Service Centre (CSC) which ultimately attained Gold certification under Excellence Canada’s Progressive Excellence Program in 2015. That experience proved a valuable guide in understanding EIW drivers, assessing the division’s readiness, and taking measures to close existing gaps. Today, the division nurtures a positive organizational culture marked by a commitment to work-life balance, innovation, Green initiatives, voluntarism, many wellness initiatives and resources, and opportunities for advancement and growth.
