Anne Levesque, Director of the Common Law Section’s Law Practice Program, was recently awarded a prestigious Senate 150th Anniversary Medal.
The medals, which commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Senate’s first sitting, “are being awarded to Canadians or permanent residents actively involved in their communities who, through generosity, dedication, volunteerism and hard work, make their hometowns, communities, regions, provinces or territories a better place to live.”
Each senator received 12 medals to award, and medals were bestowed in November 2017 based on nominations by senators. Maître Levesque received her medal from The Honourable Senator Pierre-Hugues Boisvenu (Quebec (La Salle)) “in recognition of [her] valuable service to the nation.”
Maître Levesque has volunteered extensively over the years with the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada, National Association of Women and the Law, Council of Canadians with Disabilities, and the Refugee Sponsorship Support Program, among others.
Congratulations to Maître Levesque on this tremendous recognition and for her tireless work in service of her community and country!
