What we believeAt Navigator, we aspire to the highest professional standards and have a deep commitment to our community.
Navigator emphasizes diversity and inclusion, giving back to our community, and protecting our environment.
For our team, these aren’t just buzzwords. We strive to make a meaningful impact every day, both within our workplace and outside of it.
We also want to attract exceptional talent, and to do that we take measures to provide a supportive community and environment in which to work and win.
Navigator’s work is guided by an enduring commitment to:
Diversity and inclusion
Twenty years ago, we started Navigator with the vision of a workplace where every colleague is respected for who they are and inclusion is championed. We recognize that diversity is not just a point of pride but also our greatest asset.
Navigator’s Executive Chairman and founder, Jaime Watt, has been a leader in Canada’s LGBTQ community and has been recognized by a number of human rights and LGBTQ organizations, including Egale and Out on Bay Street.
Our management team is led by a significant number of women colleagues and we strive to promote and empower female leadership across the firm.
We are proud to support Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC)-led initiatives both internally and in our community through pro bono work and volunteering.
Navigator’s offices are fully wheelchair accessible, and we are certified for the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation (IASR) training, in accordance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act and the Canadian Human Rights Code.
Our commitment to giving back is evident in the depth and breadth of our pro bono contributions. In the last three years, alone, we have contributed:

Our paper is forestry certified
FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council)-certified paper is our product of choice. By choosing FSC-certified products, we commit to protecting wildlife habitats and clean water, and to keeping forests healthy for generations to come.
Our Toronto home at 121 King St. West was evaluated on sustainability, water efficiency, indoor environmental quality and innovations in operations, achieving LEED Gold Status. We’re also BOMA BESt Level 3—the leading environmental certification program for buildings in Canada. Our lights go off automatically each evening, and all of our cleaning products are chemical-free.
Recycling and waste
Navigator has a robust recycling program to manage our waste in a reusable and sustainable fashion. We have also eliminated the use of plastic water bottles in our offices. We have installed water filters so we can provide clean drinking water to our team and our clients without plastic waste.
Volunteerism at Navigator
We encourage our colleagues to get involved in the community, serve on non-profit boards and contribute to pro bono projects. As a firm, we believe volunteer work is important for our colleagues to garner a wider perspective of the world in which we work.
