As part of its IWLA Member Advantage Program, the International Warehouse Logistics Association (IWLA) has selected Gowling Lafleur Henderson LLP, one of Canada’s largest national law firms, to provide advice, direction and guidance on Canadian regulatory and compliance issues related to third-party warehouse logistics to IWLA members located in Canada.

Gowlings is also one of Canada’s leading providers of government relations and regulatory affairs services at both federal and provincial levels of government. In addition to the assistance that will be provided to member companies on an individual basis, IWLA will call upon Gowlings’ expertise to lobby for a legislative or regulatory change on behalf of all IWLA members in Canada.

‘This partnership with Gowlings is a concrete example of IWLA delivering on and strengthening its value proposition to provide member companies with measurable value. We are pleased to offer such a substantive program to our Canadian members,’ said Joel Anderson, IWLA president and CEO.

‘Gowlings is delighted to collaborate with IWLA in this program and to provide its members with expertise on Canadian regulatory and compliance issues,’ said Gowlings Partner, Catherine Pawluch.
