Here's the impact you’ll make and what we’ll accomplish together


Legal Services at TELUS stands for delivering world class service, being innovative, and providing timely legal solutions with a high level of strategic and thoughtful business acumen that aligns with TELUS’ strategic imperatives. TELUS’ legal team partners with the business to create a future friendly legal experience, and displays curiosity, industry knowledge, and questions the status quo for continuous improvement of business practices and processes.



Here’s how


We are seeking a lawyer to support TELUS’ consumer business. As a member of the Consumer legal team, you will be engaged in a wide variety of legal matters, including reviewing advertising and marketing materials, advising on existing and emerging consumer products and services, supporting technology and supplier agreements, and drafting customer contracts and terms of service. Your practice will also touch upon privacy, competition and intellectual property.


This is an exciting opportunity for someone looking to: be a part of one of Canada’s leading in-house legal teams; join an innovative and leading Canadian company with global operations; gain exposure to legal issues across TELUS’ diverse range of business groups including telecommunications, health, and security; learn and develop as a lawyer and trusted business partner; and engage in a broad and challenging legal portfolio.


The Consumer legal team is very collaborative (and friendly!) and we work cross-functionally with other members of the TELUS legal team and across the organization. We offer many opportunities for both formal and informal mentorship and development. The position is ideal for someone who is looking to learn and grow their legal knowledge and practice within a supportive environment.


We are looking for a junior-mid level lawyer with 1-6 years from their call to the Bar. The position is located in Toronto, Montreal or Vancouver, with the ability to work remotely or in the office.
