Raj Anandas is the new chair of the board of governors of the Law Commission of Ontario (LCO).

According to a statement from the LCO, Anandas replaces Andrew Pinto, who served as chair from September 2018 to February 2020.

“It will be a privilege to serve as chair in addressing the important issues before the commission with such a talented and committed group of staff and board members,” Anandas said 

“The LCO would like to sincerely thank and bid farewell to Andrew,” the statement said. “From his initial appointment as an at-large member in 2012 to his subsequent appointment as chair, Andrew was a dedicated member of the board and advocate for the LCO. His hard work over the years has significantly contributed to the LCO’s success.”

“I want to personally thank both Andrew and Raj for their leadership and commitment to the LCO,” said Nye Thomas, LCO executive director.

Anandas’s appointment was effective April 16.
