Marjorie Brown*

Marjorie Brown received a BA Honours in Political Science and History at the University of Regina. While doing graduate work in Political Science at the University of Regina, Marjorie realized that the revolution may not happen in her lifetime and she left the pursuit of an agrarian-socialist utopia in Saskatchewan for a law degree at the University of British Columbia. Marjorie now happily resides in North Vancouver with her partner, as well as various animals she has rescued (or possibly kidnapped) from around the province.

Marjorie began working at VSLO as a summer student in 2001. Marjorie articled at VSLO and started as an associate after her call to the bar in 2003. She became a partner with the firm in 2008.

Marjorie’s practice areas include labour, human rights, administrative law and cases involving the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. She appears regularly in court for unions and other clients and she also represents unions at arbitration, at the Canada Industrial Relations Board and the BC Labour Relations Board. Marjorie has matters at both the provincial and federal human rights tribunals. In 2011, Marjorie appeared at the Supreme Court of Canada for the British Columbia Nurses Union on the Insite safe injection site case.

Marjorie represents workers in both the private and public sector. Within the public sector Marjorie has extensive experience in education, health and with firefighters and police officers, including members of the RCMP. In the private sector Marjorie represents workers in a variety of industries, including work at the waterfront and the forestry sector. In addition to her work in British Columbia, Marjorie is the partner responsible for the firm’s Saskatchewan practice.

Marjorie is a member of the Canadian Association of Labour Lawyers, the Canadian Bar Association and sits on the Board of Directors of the Canadian Foundation for Labour Rights.
