Quinn Ross Ascends to 1st VP Post at Ontario Bar Association

On August 14, 2016 Quinn Ross took over the role of 1st VP of the Ontario Bar Association. The Ontario Bar Association (OBA), a branch of the CBA, represents 17,000 lawyers, judges, notaries, law teachers and law students from across the province.

Quinn will assist the President in directing the strategic mandate and projects undertaken by over 50 staff utilizing a multi-million dollar annual budget. He will continue to advance his dual agendas. First, the relevance of the profession through technology and innovation. Quinn brings a unique perspective as a non-urban practitioner who has the benefit of his small community experience as well as his time among the professionals on Bay Street. Quinn will also continue to vocally address issues of equity and inclusiveness specifically with regard to the LGBTQ community and women in the profession.

In his new role, Quinn recently returned from the annual Canadian Bar Association conference in Ottawa where he was afforded time with the Chief Justice of Canada, Beverley McLachlin, the Chief Executive Officer of the Law Society of Upper Canada, Robert Lapper as well as the incoming President of the Canadian Bar Association, Rene Basque.
