    Thank you for visiting the website of the Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers (“FACL”). In 2007, FACL was founded in Toronto by a small group of Asian Canadian legal professionals, many of whom remain active and provide guidance through our Advisory Committee. We are united by a common interest in promoting equity, justice and opportunity for Canadians of pan-Asian origin, in both the legal profession and the wider community. We also recognize the need to cultivate and advance advocacy, community involvement, professional development and leadership by Asian Canadian legal professionals. In accomplishing these goals, we have reached out and partnered with like-minded organizations (such as the South Asian Bar Association, Canadian Association of Black Lawyers, and Korean Canadian Lawyers Association) on various events and initiatives.
