Pamela Costanzo

Every employment dispute is different because it involves different individuals. I learn my clients’ values, and use those values to help guide their decision making.

My practice has been focused on supporting unions in representing their members, by providing practical advice and passionate advocacy.  I have represented and advised unions on a wide range of matters since my call to the bar in 2007.  I started in labour law early in my career, summering, articling and practicing at small union side labour law firms. I have represented clients before arbitrators, the Labour Relations Board, and the BC Courts, and frequently acts as counsel at mediations.

Before attending law school at UBC, I obtained my Master’s Degree in Occupational Health and Safety from McGill University and worked as an occupational hygienist. I have an undergraduate degree in physics and greatly enjoy files where I get to do a little math.

I have been a volunteer with Salvation Army legal programs, Girl Guides of Canada, and my school PAC. I live on the North Shore, where I try to keep up with my children on skis, bikes, and hiking trails.
