CBABC members enjoyed a fulsome return to in-person socials and hybrid substantive law meetings this fall, with over 80 activities to choose from. Here are some of the highlights.

Monte Carlo Night

The Young Lawyers – Lower Mainland, Business Law and Women Lawyers Forum Section members partnered with Chartered Financial Analyst Society Vancouver and Chartered Professional Accountants BC to bring back the annual Monte Carlo Night! The event took place at the Vancouver Club and brought together over 150 attendees to enjoy a night filled with live jazz, appetizers, refreshments, and of course,
casino games.

Attendees also had the opportunity to donate their clothing for a cause. The event supported Working Gear and Dress for Success, two charities that provide industry-appropriate clothing to low-income or unemployed individuals.

Land Owner Transparency Act and Real Property Taxes in BC

This popular Wills & Trusts – Vancouver Section virtual meeting attracted over 200 attendees in October and covered pertinent tax requirements under the Land Owner Transparency Act and Land Owner Transparency Registry. Attendees gained insight on the various taxes that impact wills and estates practice, including speculation, vacancy, and housing taxes.

Maritime Law November Dinner

Maritime Law members were keen to reconvene in-person at the sold-out annual November Dinner. The evening featured light-hearted humorous tales from esteemed Maritime Bar members, David McEwen, KC, John Bromley KC, Gary Wharton, and Elyn Underhill.

Over 30 Immigration Law members gathered at the SeaHouse Restaurant to kickstart the membership year. Adrienne Denham, Vice-Chair of the Immigration Law - Overseas Lawyers Group, welcomed new and familiar faces and members were treated to live music, a heated patio, and an abundance of appetizers!
