Partner Charles Boulakia is a 2017 recipient of the prestigious G. Raymond Chang Outstanding Volunteer Award, presented by Ryerson University.
This is in recognition of all the efforts that Charles and Ridout & Maybee LLP have provided to the Faculty of Engineering and Architectural Science (FEAS) and the Esch Program. Award recipients are recognized for their contributions to specific academic faculties or institutes or to Ryerson University overall.
As a committee member for the Norman Esch Engineering Innovation and Entrepreneurship Awards, Charles has provided pro bono IP advice and guidance to award recipients in an effort to assist with their ideas and entrepreneurial endeavours.
From the Ryerson University website: “The G. Raymond Chang Outstanding Volunteer Awards celebrate the exemplary generosity and contribution of alumni and friends to Ryerson University. The awards are named in honour of the late G. Raymond Chang, an Officer of the Order of Canada and former chancellor of Ryerson University, for his deep belief in the importance of volunteering. The business leader and philanthropist participated in 95 convocations and awarded nearly 30,000 degrees and diplomas.”
Charles was recognized along with over 55 other recipients during the inaugural awards ceremony held on June 20, 2017.
