Community Involvement

At Lakefield, it is important to us to give back to the community we are so grateful to live and work in.

Our lawyers and staff regularly volunteer for causes that are important to each of us individually, such as Saskatchewan Jazz Festival, Saskatoon YWCA, Greater Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce, Boys and Girls Club, and countless others. Our lawyers have also offered their expertise on various crown corporation, for-profit and non-profit boards such as Saskatchewan Research Council and Saskatoon Crime Stoppers, and will lend their legal services to organizations such as CLASSIC, Pro Bono Law Saskatchewan and NSBA. In addition, we are always first in line to support community events such as the Kinsmen Sports Celebrity Dinner, B’nai Brith and Silver Spoon, with sponsorships, attendance and donations.

As a firm, we choose a cause to focus on or an organization to partner with on an annual basis. As an example, in 2021, we were a major supporter of the Pegasus Project, an initiative created by STARS Air Ambulance to raise funds for their life-saving helicopters. Lakefield LLP was the title sponsor of the Lakefield LLP Rolling Raffle, which raised funds by selling tickets for a grand prize trip for four to Scottsdale.

In 2023, we launched a partnership with Saskatoon Food Bank and Learning Centre and provided volunteers, donations and sponsorships throughout the year. In May 2023, our entire team rolled up their sleeves at the Garden Patch: a 1.5 acre urban farm in Saskatoon that grows fresh food for Emergency Food Hampers.

With inflation and the rising costs of groceries, food security has emerged as an urgent need in our community. As such, we decided to extend our partnership with the Saskatoon Food Bank for another year. We will continue to donate most wanted food items, such as baby formula, whole grain pastas, cereal, juice, and personal hygiene items, and will continue to volunteer at least quarterly at the SFB Warehouse to assemble food hampers for their Emergency Nutrition Program, which provides 2 to 3 days’ of food to anyone in Saskatoon and area.

We’re excited to share more about Lakefield’s sponsorships with the Saskatoon Food Bank throughout 2024. In the meantime, check out this video recapping our volunteer day last year at the Saskatoon Food Bank Garden Patch!
