Brian brings valuable skills and experience to our board. As a commercial lawyer for the past 35(!) years, he’s advised many of Toronto’s (and Ontario’s) co-operative, charitable, and non-profit organizations on a wide range of issues and transactions. He’s been the creative legal mind behind many of our innovative social enterprises. He’s learned and applied the business skills required to build his law firm – Iler Campbell – to its current twenty staff, including seven lawyers. And he’s a committed community activist, as a member of Ontario Non-profit Network’s Expert Working Group on corporate law reform; a long-time advocate for reforms to Ontario’s Co-operative Corporations Act; a founder of Toronto Renewable Energy Co-operative that erected the wind turbine at Exhibition Place; a founding director of the Community Power Fund, established to finance community-based renewable energy projects; a member of the management committee for the hugely successful Green Energy Act campaign; chair and spokesperson for CommunityAIR that campaigns to rid Toronto’s waterfront of the scourge that is the Island Airport.
