Victoria

Victoria and Vancouver are “the twin engines driving provincial growth, with Greater Vancouver and the Capital Region accounting for about 70 per cent of B.C.’s population growth”. (Saanich News editorial, February 11, 2017, citing Statistics Canada Census figures)

Victoria Employment Lawyers Serving Vancouver Island

It’s an exciting time for Victoria and those who call it home. Rated as one of the best places to live and work in British Columbia, it’s an outdoor paradise, nestled around the Inner Harbour and surrounded by the Juan de Fuca Strait. Victoria is also one of Canada’s top 10 metropolitan areas when it comes to population growth and density (according to Statistics Canada’s 2016 Census data).

As this beautiful city by the sea continues to grow, so does its opportunity to become a province-leader in employment practices. Kent Employment Law welcomes the chance to partner with Victoria’s employers and employees to help them create successful, thriving workplace relationships.

Our Vancouver Island office is led by labour and employment lawyer Michael Penner. Working alongside Michael to support Victoria’s business and worker communities is Legal Assistant Johanna Strimas.
