The Human Resources team in the Ottawa office of Borden Ladner Gervais LLP (BLG) was recently recognized with the 2010 Export Development Canada Vision Award for Outstanding Community Involvement and a commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility. The team, which includes Grace Langford, Joanna Cochrane, Jessica Ferguson and Karen Watters, was selected for the award due to their tremendous dedication and commitment to BLG's core value of giving back to the community.

Among many community initiatives supported by the team, BLG has raised more than $500,000 over five years through the workplace United Way campaign, including $135,000 raised in 2009. BLG also touches the lives of many Ottawa residents through the BLG Reads to Kids Program, and its involvement in over 35 local charitable organizations.
