In Memory of The Honourable Yoine Goldstein

News Apr 1, 2020

It is with great sadness that members of McMillan LLP in all our offices extend their heartfelt condolences to the Goldstein family on the passing of The Honourable Yoine Goldstein.

A former Canadian senator, Yoine Goldstein was legendary, not only in the Montréal legal community, but throughout Canada. He has been a role model for lawyers for well over 50 years.

In addition to his distinguished legal career — and at least as important to Senator Goldstein, if not more so — was his devotion to volunteer public service. He was actively involved, devoting countless hours to the Barreau du Québec, the Fondation du Barreau and a multitude of community organizations. It is easier to count the organizations with which he was not involved than those to which he contributed.

Over his career, Senator Goldstein received an endless stream of awards and tributes for both his legal and his volunteer work.

While still serving in the Senate, Yoine  joined the firm as senior counsel in 2006, bringing his great knowledge, wisdom and sense of humour. While committed to providing the best in legal service to his clients, he was a mentor to many and a friend to all in McMillan’s Montréal office.

Senator Goldstein’s passing is a great loss to the legal community, the Jewish community and the community in general.
