WeirFoulds LLP is pleased to announce that our colleague Michael Foderick has been selected as a recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal – a commemorative medal honouring significant contributions Canadians have made to their communities. The Hon. Peggy Nash, Member of Parliament for Parkdale-High Park, will present the award to Mr. Foderick on Sunday, January 20, 2013.
“We are very proud of Michael’s strong commitment to public service, and it is gratifying to see his contributions recognized with this well-deserved honour” says WeirFoulds’ managing partner Michael Statham. “Michael is a talented lawyer and a dedicated and passionate member of the Toronto community. We congratulate him on this significant achievement.”
Mr. Foderick is currently the Vice-Chair of the Toronto Public Library Board and previously served as co-Chair and President of Parkdale Community Legal Services, one of the largest legal clinics in Canada. He founded the Roncesvalles Village Food Drive in support of the Daily Bread Food Bank, and has also served as a Canadian Forces Infantry Officer with the Queen’s Own Rifles of Canada.
Mr. Foderick’s practice at WeirFoulds encompasses a broad range of litigation matters with a focus on municipal, planning, and development law.
The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal was created to mark the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty’s accession to the Throne. The Medal honours Her Majesty for her service to this country, while also honouring the contributions Canadians have made to their communities.
