OTTAWA – Daniel Bourque of Montreal has been elected Chair of the Canadian Bar Association’s (CBA) Canadian Corporate Counsel Association (CCCA) for 2019-2020 – a role he has taken over from Mike McKinney, Q.C. of Edmonton as of September 1, 2019. Daniel Bourque is Senior Legal Counsel for TD Bank Group.
"Bourque’s goal, as Chair of the leading and largest association of in-house counsel in the country, is to continue to promote the tremendous and strategic value of in-house counsel throughout Canada’s organizations, while growing our CCCA membership. “Our greatest resource is our members,” explains Bourque “CCCA members are highly-talented, diverse, versatile. They are well-placed in businesses and public sector, and offer a wealth of knowledge, experience and insight for their corporate clients. Often, our members are called upon to play an increasingly important role in their organization, their community and globally."
CCCA offers a credible array of professional learning opportunities, including a very successful Mentoring Program, a very popular National Conference every spring – in 2020, it will be in Montreal April 26-28. “In an age where so many of us are constantly staring at screens,” says Bourque, “this conference is a golden opportunity to interact face-to-face with colleagues and service providers.”
Now almost 5,000 members strong of varying degrees of experience, the CCCA continues to provide in-house counsel members learning opportunities at every stage of their career, including the highly-specialized Rotman School of Management: Business Leadership Program for In-House Counsel, and a Career Management Portal.
