Canada’s network of legal professionals of Brazilian origin.

Since 2017, the BCBA Founders have been working to advance networking opportunities and bring multicultural and educational awareness to the growing community of legal professionals of Brazilian origin in Canada. BCBA was born from the initiative of seven Brazilian lawyers who share a vision to develop professional excellence among Brazilian legal practitioners in Canada.

The Association aims to strengthen bonds within the Brazilian Canadian legal community by advancing its members’ well-being and education, bringing awareness to legal professional standards, and promoting equitable opportunities.
