Jason Edwards

With a background in labour, Jason brings a practical, real-world focus to the practice of labour and employment law.

Jason received his JD from Osgoode Hall Law School, completing the Labour and Employment Law curricular stream. While attending law school, Jason spent a semester in the Workers’ Rights division of Parkdale Community Legal Services. There, he helped Legal Aid Ontario clients navigate Small Claims Court, the Labour Board and the Ministry of Labour’s Employment Standards Claim process.

Jason has also helped solve work-related problems by volunteering his services at the Workers’ Action Centre.

Jason received his BA and MA in Political Science from the University of New Brunswick with a research focus in low-wage and precarious work. His interest in the practical application of social science led him to become a Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives Research Associate after contributing to numerous publications with the organization’s Nova Scotia branch.

Raised in the Annapolis Valley, Jason is excited to have returned to practice in Nova Scotia. He enjoys the East Coast’s cool water and crashing waves.
