Burn Tucker Lachaîne is a proud supporter of several Eastern Ontario community and charitable organizations.
Spinal Cord Injury Ontario, formerly known as the Canadian Paraplegic Association
We were the first Ottawa law firm to sponsor Spinal Cord Injury Ontario, formerly known as the Canadian Paraplegic Association Ontario's Peer Support Program. The Peer Support Program helps people affected by spinal cord injury by complementing the professional services provided in acute-care hospitals, rehabilitation centres and community-based health and social service agencies. Peer Support volunteers provide one-to-one support to persons who have sustained an injury and to their families. We are privileged to support the wonderful work of these dedicated volunteers.
Over the years, we have sponsored SCI Ontario’s Champagne Charity Auction and Wheelchair Relay Challenges.
Helmets on Kids Program
Because of the work we do, we understand the importance of safety and injury prevention.
Each year, on behalf of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association (OTLA), we help raise funds to purchase bicycle helmets for local elementary school children who might not otherwise have a helmet. We are proud to work on this project with the Brain Injury Association of the Ottawa Valley, Parachute (ThinkFirst), Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario and Youth Injury Prevention Centre, Citizen for Safe Cycling, Ottawa Safety Council, Safe Communities Ottawa, Vista Centre and Ottawa Public Health.
Colleen Burn sits on the board of Vista Centre, a non-profit organization that helps individuals with acquired brain injuries.
Law Help Ontario
Operated by Pro Bono Law Ontario, Law Help Ontario offers pro bono (free) legal assistance for low-income Ontarians. Some of Burn Tucker Lachaîne's lawyers donate their time at the Ottawa walk-in centre.
Law Day Run
The firm also participates in the annual Law Day Run, which is an event held in April in Ottawa to raise funds for different charities.
In addition to supporting charitable and community organizations, Burn Tucker Lachaîne is also a proud member of the Ontario legal community.
Our lawyers and law clerks stay well informed of the latest developments in personal injury law by regularly attending legal education conferences. We frequently present at these conferences and write articles on personal injury law.
Laurie Tucker served on the Board of Directors of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association for over 10 years. OTLA is an organization committed to access to justice for those who have suffered losses as a result of injury.
Our lawyers and clerks are active in the OTLA, the County of Carleton Law Association and the Association of French Speaking Jurists in Ontario.
