Ashley Syer receives APB's 2018 Allan Parker QC Award for Representation Services

On April 19, 2018 in downtown Vancouver, over 100 Access Pro Bono volunteers and supporters attended its annual Pro Bono Appreciation Breakfast. There, directors and staff awarded Vancouver lawyer Ashley Syer the 2018 Allan Parker QC Award for Representation Services.

For over five years, Ashley has been a regular volunteer with APB's Civil Chambers Program. She has represented dozens of low- and modest-income clients in chambers hearings and mediations in matters ranging from employment law to residential tenancy law. Recently, Ashley was instrumental in assisting a client whose disability prevented him from being able to talk from losing his home.

Ashley is a shining example of the selfless volunteer spirit that propels APB forward in its mission to increase access to justice for all British Columbians. Thank you, Ashley!
