SASKATOON – The Canadian Bar Association, Saskatchewan Branch, is pleased to announce Brenda Walper-Bossence, QC, as its 2015 Community Service Award recipient. Brenda has a general practice in Moose Jaw, where she has practiced since 1986.
The Community Service Award was created to recognize valuable contributions of CBA members who have demonstrated outstanding dedication, service and commitment in serving the communities of our province.
For years, Brenda has been an active volunteer, not only with The Canadian Bar Association, but also within the community. She devotes much of her time to various organizations within her community, including the Moose Jaw Rotary Club, John Howard Society and Minto United Church.
Brenda’s support and consideration for the community are also evident in the everyday work that she does, especially within the legal community, being involved in the National Women in Law and Saskatchewan Trial Lawyers’ Association, as well as PLEA and SKLESI.
“I see the Community Service Award as being recognition for that person who makes lawyers look good in the community and who helps make the community a better place,“ says Gail Wartman, QC, President of CBA Saskatchewan, “Brenda Walper-Bossence is a great example of the role model in this community.”
The 2015 Community Service Award will be presented to Brenda on June 18th, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Conference Centre Regina, following the Branch Annual Meeting.
The Canadian Bar Association is dedicated to improving the law and the administration of justice. Some 37,000 lawyers, law teachers and law students from across Canada are members of the Association, with over 1,100 being members of the Saskatchewan Branch.
