Why Work at GBC?

Our team takes learning & development seriously

Personal and professional development is a priority for us. We challenge each other to push the boundaries of our knowledge and expertise by encouraging our team to pursue new learning opportunities whenever possible. Whether that comes in the form of professional development courses or offering mentoring and training to help someone expand their skill set, we promote continual learning over the evolution of our careers.

To that end, we are committed to supporting our team to achieve their developmental goals. We use both scheduled and unscheduled check-ins to offer opportunities for self-reflection, planning, problem-solving, encouragement, and constructive feedback. This helps us remain accountable to our individual goals and to each other.

Work wins and
milestones matter

Our organization promotes a culture of gratitude and appreciation. We recognize the little wins and celebrate the big ones. Whether it’s a spoken “thank-you”, an email of gratitude, or a celebration of a professional or personal milestone, we strive to let our team know they are appreciated.

Succeed together,
learn together

Behind every great employee is a supportive team. We at GBC share a drive and determination to succeed together and apart; it’s our secret sauce. As a boutique firm, collaboration is very important to us. Your thoughts and ideas matter here, and your curiosity and voice help to contribute to the success of the team. At GBC, you’ll see us working cohesively to ensure our clients are receiving maximum efficiency and value from us.

A Vision to be different

We’re driven by the desire to change the old way of doing things, and dispel the negative perception of lawyers. At GBC, we strive to make a real difference in the world of our clients and the world around us.

Legal Assistant

Real Estate & Wills and Personal Planning
The practice of law has always intrigued me. After completing a paralegal course at CDI College, I was eager to embark on a new career as a Legal Assistant. When an administrative coordinator position became available at GBC Law, I took advantage of the opportunity to get involved with the firm, with an eye on becoming a full-time legal assistant soon after. That goal became a reality in January, 2021 through the support of my co-workers, and a dedication to learn and grow with the firm.
Quality service is clearly a top priority at the firm and customer service is my bread-and-butter. I have worked in the customer service industry for 15+ years, and have had interactions with people from all walks of life. My success in the industry is likely attributable to my natural ability to connect with people and build lasting relationships.

I would describe our team as having a wealth of knowledge and experience, and a penchant for collective problem-solving. The firm’s commitment to building a strong work culture and a cohesive team is unquestionable.

To me, the most attractive part of GBC’s core values is the value of respect. Respect is the key element in every interaction and, in my opinion, is most telling about a person’s character.

Lawyer

I was looking for a new and exciting adventure after graduating from Simon Fraser University, and got exactly that when I moved to Kingston to attend law school at Queen’s University. My intention was always to come back home, with new experiences under my belt, and start my career in the only place I knew for the first 26 years of my life. As luck would have it, I landed an articling position at GBC Law right out of law school.
The whole team here has a great energy, from front reception to the corner office. We have a group of people who I really feel want the best for the firm and each other. Accountability is key, and everyone understands the underlying importance of this, especially during the busiest of times.
Efficiency is highly valued at our firm as well. I enjoy having the freedom to explore new ways of streamlining our processes and utilizing technology to its full potential to maximize value for our clients.

What I’ve gathered from working here is that we genuinely care for one another and constantly push each other to be better. With our core values as our compass, we are always looking to improve ourselves, whether that be professionally, personally, or collectively as a firm.

Legal Assistant

Real Estate & Corporate
I started my career with GBC Law back in 2015 after completing my Legal Administrative Certificate Program. I believe my longevity at the firm speaks to my desire to work at a company that prides itself on producing quality work, and fostering an environment where I can grow and develop my skills and abilities.
Working at GBC Law has given me the confidence to overcome challenges that I wasn’t sure I could overcome. Challenges will arise in any work setting, but I’ve come to realize that having the support of a patient, supportive, and competent group of co-workers makes a world of a difference. Everyone is dependable and trustworthy when it comes to collaborating on files.

Over the years, I have seen the firm collectively refine its core values, mission, and vision, to bring them in line with our clients’ expectations, as well as our own. In addition, the culture at our office exudes positivity, which is enticing by itself.

One of my proudest moments at the firm was completing over 80+ real estate files in the span of just one month. The acknowledgement I received from my colleagues really made me feel appreciated and celebrating my accomplishment with them meant a lot to me. I love how the firm demonstrates its gratitude towards its employees in times like these.
