Halifax partner Candace L. Thomas, QC, has been chosen as the recipient of the Canadian Bar Association Nova Scotia Branch 2017 Community Service Award. This recognition is given to one individual each year who has made significant contributions to the community, including to a charitable cause, at the local, provincial or federal level.
In addition to her legal practice, Candace Co-Chairs Stewart McKelvey’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee. She is a current member of the Governance and Nominating Committee, as well as the Hearing Committee of the Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society, and a member of the Dalhousie University Board of Governors.
