Community Involvement

Even before opening the firm's first office in Orléans in 1979, Gerry Dust was invested in the community, taking an active role in the original Orléans Chamber of Commerce and serving on the Board of the Chatelaine Village Community Association. Community involvement has been a hallmark of the firm ever since. Its lawyers have served and continue to serve on the Boards of numerous local not-for-profit organizations. They have served as Presidents and Board members of both the current Orléans Chamber of Commerce and the Business Club d'Orléans. Brad Evans was President of The Ottawa Mission for two years, a Board member for fifteen years, and continues to be a voting member today. Gerry Dust co-chaired the Fundraising Committee for the construction of the original Orléans YMCA/YWCA, sat on the Disaster Relief Committee of the Regional Municipality of Ottawa-Carleton after the ice storm of 1998, served on the Mayor's Task Force on Economic Development for the now-defunct Township of Cumberland and sat for four years as a director of the Ottawa Congress Centre. All of our lawyers frequently provide pro bono legal advice to local non-profit organizations. And the list goes on. In addition to the lawyers giving of their time and expertise, the firm has donated generously to numerous community causes and projects. The most visible manifestation of this generosity is the Dust Evans Pottery Gallery at the Shenkman Arts Centre. When the Centre was built we were honored to contribute to it and to have the pottery gallery named after the firm. This gallery provides a distinctive, state-of-the-art space for displaying the work of local potters and sculptors.

The firm is proud of its past and on-going contributions to Orléans and area. It is committed to continuing the tradition of supporting the community that has supported it for over thirty years.
