Giving Back to the Community
People of Calgary
YYC Employment Law Group is a forward-thinking and community-based employment law firm dedicated to serving The People of Calgary and surrounding areas – we are passionate about everything local. As part of our mandate as an ethical and people-first legal practice, we want to give back to the community that raised, developed and continues to sustain us. We feel that’s the fair and right thing to do. We grew up here and want to pay that good fortune forward. Part of this is our commitment to supporting and strengthening Our City, The People of Calgary and surrounding areas at grassroots level.
Each month, we will be selecting one local (i.e. Calgary and surrounding area) student, entrepreneur, small or independent business owner, charity, cause or person/family in need for our $350.00 cash giveaway.
Entries can be made via:
All entries must include a brief description and be received no later than the 27th of each month. Selection of our recipient will occur on or before the 30th of the month.

We realize that employment lawyers aren’t cheap. While we work hard to keep our flat-rate fees reasonable and as low as we can, legal fees are still a financial burden for many employees. Each month, we select one individual to provide cost-free legal advice and representation to. This is one of the many ways we partner with our community.
