Kim Hyslop

Kim Hyslop is a criminal lawyer who demonstrates an outstanding commitment of service to Ottawa and her community at large. In late 2015, Kim became a founding director of Barristers for a Better Bytown, a charity focused on raising funds to support charitable causes in the Ottawa area with projects and initiatives that help at-risk children and youth, people experiencing homelessness, and other vulnerable groups within our community. In late 2019, Kim held a Holiday Food Drive, which invited local law firms, judges, and support staff to compete against each other to see who could raise the most amount of food for local food banks. While Kim had only expected to support five local food centers in the area, the food drive was far more successful than expected, and Kim and her fellow lawyers delivered donations of over seven tonnes of non-perishable food, as well as warm clothing like toques and socks, to seven local centers and the Ottawa Food Bank.  

In the past 5 years, Kim and her team of legal professionals have raised over $53,000 for local charities. Kim has spent hundreds of hours organizing local events and volunteering opportunities for groups the Snowsuit Fund, the Shepherds of Good HopeParkdale Food Centre, and Habitat for Humanity.
