Before joining the Jewitt McLuckie & Associates team, Cole spent a year working with Lakehead University Community Legal Services. In this role, he travelled to Northern Ontario communities and reserves to provide legal assistance. In addition to his legal clinic work, Cole completed a practice placement at the Crown Attorney’s Office in Thunder Bay. While on this placement, he worked in the courts of Thunder Bay and Northern Ontario, some of which were only accessible by plane.
Cole’s interest in labour law began when he first started working with Jewitt McLuckie and Associates in 2014. While attending Carleton University, Cole worked as a member of the support staff team. The experience he gained in the years preceding law school with Jewitt McLuckie and Associates has served him well ever since.
Cole is pleased to be working with the Jewitt McLuckie team in support of the labour movement and employee rights.
