Continuing with our “Year of Giving” in celebration of our 20th Anniversary, we empowered our employees to come up with ideas that have the number 20 in them, connected to a charitable act or donation. On July 20th, September 20th and November 20th, we honor the three charities and ideas which received the most votes.
For today’s charitable cause, our staff has chosen the Vancouver Association for the Survivors of Torture (VAST). Our donation funds 20 counselling sessions to support refugee mental health and recovery. VAST provides trauma-focused physiological counselling, group support, documentation to support refugee claims, community building, education and referral services for health, housing and settlement services for those in need.

Hammerberg Lawyers LLP has a long-standing history of charitable giving. We believe in giving back to the community where we live and work, to our neighbours, friends and fellow British Columbians.
