In a ceremony at Government House later today, Arvay Finlay LLP partner, Joseph Arvay, QC will receive B.C.'s highest honour - an appointment to the Order of British Columbia.
The Order of British Columbia recognizes "exceptional individuals whose hard work, generosity of spirit and outstanding achievements have contributed immeasurably to the well-being of our communities."
Joe himself is being recognized for "advancing civil liberties and defending before the Supreme Court of Canada many cases that saved lives, improved the lives of marginalized people, and secured the important rights of others."
