Together, we are deeply committed to dismantling systemic barriers and empowering Black-owned businesses.

About Goodmans LABB

Aware that Black-owned businesses face many systemic barriers in their start-up processes that may limit their ultimate success, Goodmans launched a program in 2020 with the goal of helping to address these challenges uniquely faced by the Black business community. Goodmans LABB (Legal Advice for Black Businesses) offers pro bono corporate commercial legal services to qualifying Black-owned Ontario businesses.  Since 2020, Goodmans has helped numerous Black businesses in a variety of sectors, providing free legal services across multiple practice areas. We are proud to now partner with BlackNorth B.E.G.I.N. to continue this work.
