The firm has recently made major financial contributions to sponsor a room at Thames Valley Children’s Centre, plus a seminar room in the new Lassonde Pavilion at the University of Western Ontario.

Bisset's Best

John Bisset has led a team of employees participating in a dedicated 10K run to support the Make A Wish Foundation of Southwestern Ontario.

Our goal for this year is to raise $20,000.
