In the few short months since moving to Calgary from Vancouver and settling in to his new job with Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt, Steven Ngo has founded a chapter of the Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers and launched a non-profit organization to entertain and raise money for charities.

Very involved in the student community, which included organizing conferences, Ngo earned his degree in commerce and was named valedictorian for his year. While working at Telus he met with the in-house counsel and got excited about corporate law.

FACL has a strong chapter in Vancouver where Ngo got involved. The organization promotes equality, justice and opportunity for Asian Canadian legal professionals while fostering advocacy, community involvement, legal scholarship and professional development.

Ngo’s enthusiasm has already attracted 121 lawyer members, although members don’t have to be lawyers.
