Origin and Cause is the proud recipient of a Services Appreciation Award from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police: “In recognition of your professionalism and assistance to the “D” Division Major Crimes Unit with the murder investigation, Project Dispute.

“We are honoured by the trust placed in us by the RCMP and grateful to have been able to assist them in achieving a positive outcome in an otherwise tragic situation,” said Origin and Cause President Mazen Habash. “We hope that justice is served and this helps bring some closure to the family.
