The chapter welcomes e-discovery, information governance, data privacy and other data management professionals in the Vancouver area, including law students, new graduates, young legal professionals, and seasoned legal professionals, and will assist aspiring CEDS in earning their certifications.

We are here to assist them—as well as all other chapters—to achieve their goals.

Knowledge is power and education is the source of that power.”

“In a field such as e-discovery the most important thing one can do for their career and self is to stay connected and continuously educate themselves in best practices and new innovations,” added MacInnis. “Vancouver already has a wonderful e-discovery community and now we will add to this our very own ACEDS Chapter, which will help all of us grow, learn and connect.”
