Ronald F. Caza, Law Society Medal recipientThe Law Society recognized Ottawa’s Ronald F. Caza with its Law Society Medal at the 2016 Law Society Awards.

A proud Franco-Ontarian from Northern Ontario, Ronald F. Caza graduated from the University of Ottawa.

He successfully argued significant cases before juries and all Courts, ensuring important advancements in many areas, including defamation. His most significant contribution is the advancement of constitutional protection of linguistic minorities.

Having successfully defended the Montfort Hospital from closure by the government, Caza argued groundbreaking Supreme Court of Canada cases to defend Francophone and Quebec’s Anglophone minorities, thereby providing essential constitutional tools to protect their languages, cultures and institutions.

A partner at Caza Saikaley LLP, and formerly with Heenan Blaikie LLP and Nelligan O’Brien Payne LLP, Caza has made a significant impact on his community through his steadfast leadership and tireless work with countless organizations and charities.

Mr. Caza was called to the Bar in 1989.

Each year, the Law Society Medal is awarded to Ontario lawyers for outstanding service within the profession, whether in the area of practice, in the academic sphere, or in some other professional capacity where the service is in accordance with the highest ideals of the legal profession.

The Law Society honoured 14 members of the legal professions at the May 25th event in Toronto.
