The outbreak of COVID-19 has caused disruptions across all industries in Canada including here at home in Manitoba, leaving organizations and individuals uncertain of the future lost.

We are committed to supporting our clients and communities through turbulent legal waters and to help show the way. We are offering up to $10,000 to four (4) Manitoba-based organizations struggling with legal challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 


Our COMPASS pro bono program provides assistance to those in the greatest need.

In its initial launch of the COMPASS program, TDS pledged to offer its legal services to four applicants. In keeping with our commitment to pay it forward, TDS has selected five organizations who have made commendable contributions to our community.  

Congratulations to the selected organizations.  For real-time updates on our selected COMPASS organizations, follow us on social media!

What does COMPASS stand for?


COMPASS is designed as a ‘pay-it-forward’ program, aimed at giving back to organizations who have a history of giving back to the community, but are now facing significant headwinds during the current economic storm. We will work with selected applicants on a pro bono basis, to help them navigate the challenges and assist them with setting a new course for recovery.
