He has also acted on behalf of the Canada Revenue Agency in bankruptcy matters.

Armed with this unique experience, Boyd can assist you in resolving disputes with the Canada Revenue Agency in a cost-effective and expedient manner.

Boyd attended law school at Western University and Université Laval obtaining a Bachelor of Laws in common law and a Bachelor of Laws in civil law. He subsequently clerked at the Federal Court of Appeal for Justice Robert Décary.

Following his Call to the Bar in 1999, Boyd worked in private practice before joining the Department of Justice in 2002 where he practiced for fifteen years.

For over twenty years, Boyd served Canada as an infantry officer in the Canadian Armed Forces Primary Reserve. His operational experience includes deployments to Kosovo and the Democratic Republic of Congo with the United Nations. He recently retired from the Army.

In his spare time, he enjoys sailing on the Ottawa River and in the Thousand Islands.
