To The Readers Of The Metropolitan Corporate Counsel,

The Association of Corporate Counsel Canada – Ontario Chapter was the first ACC Chapter established in Canada and is proud to have grown to over 650 members.  We offer our members numerous continuing legal education opportunities, as well as a variety of social and networking events throughout the year.  We have had a very busy year that has included successful programs on Social Media and Privacy, Minimizing Risks in M & A Deals, and Human Rights Investigations, among others.  We have also had some great networking events including our Spring and Summer Socials.

Our busy year continues in the fall with programs on topics such as: Labour and Employment, Insolvency and Occupational Health and Safety, among others, as well as our chapter’s active involvement and key participation at the ACC Annual Meeting in Los Angeles in late October.  The Ontario Chapter is honoured to be presenting a program on Canada’s pending Anti-Spam Legislation at the ACC Annual Meeting, as well as holding our third annual Canadian Kick-off social event on the evening of Sunday, October 27, 2013.  In late November, back in Toronto, we will be bringing to our members another ACC Ontario annual social event along the lines of our well-attended art crawls, with the generous support of our sponsors.

Our chapter membership continues to grow as we serve the needs of needs of in-house counsel in Ontario by delivering timely information, education, networking opportunities and advocacy.  For more information about the ACC Ontario Chapter and our upcoming events please visit: http://www.acc.com/chapters/ontario/
