Heuristica Sponsors Families on Giving Tuesday

On Giving Tuesday this year, Heuristica was pleased to sponsor three families this holiday season.

 

Through Holiday Helpers the firm sponsored three single-parent families with a total of four kids ranging from 5 to 8 years old.

 

The firm’s Office Manager, Annalee O’Donnell, organized the initiative and took it upon herself to shop for gifts for all three families according to lists provided by them and also prepared a customized stocking for each person.  Annalee said “it’s been awhile since I shopped for little kids and I actually had to look some things up on the internet to see what they were.” … Read More

Once again Heuristica is pleased to sponsor the Laskin, Canada’s only annual national bilingual moot court competition.

Heuristica Sponsors Art Exhibition

Heuristica Sponsors Art Exhibition

We are happy to sponsor “La Canícula“, an art exhibition by Vivian Suter with Elisabeth Wild at The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery in Toronto.

 

The exhibition marks the Canadian debut for both artists who currently live in Guatemala.
