Paige Ainslie is an Associate at Roper Greyell, practicing in all areas of employment and labour law, with particular emphasis on human rights issues where she believes appropriate legal guidance can work to the benefit of all parties in a dispute. From her Nelson, B.C. office, Paige provides legal counsel to Roper Greyell’s clients throughout B.C., and is uniquely positioned to provide on-the-ground representation for its clients in the Kootenay region of the province.
With nine years as in-house counsel for Canadian Pacific Railway under her belt, Paige brings a wealth of knowledge to Roper Greyell’s clients with respect to employment and labour legislation and regulations in the federal sector. Understanding the business needs of large organizations with both unionized and non-unionized employees, she looks forward to contributing her expertise to her clients and to the Roper Greyell team as a whole.
Born in St. Albert, Alberta, Paige took her Bachelor of Laws at the University of Saskatchewan and studied International Intellectual Property Law at the University of Oxford. She is called to the bar in both British Columbia and Alberta.
In 2010, through the Canadian Bar Association, Paige won an eight-month internship to Uganda with the Foundation for Human Rights Initiative during which she prepared a comprehensive report on labour rights and working conditions in that African nation.
A lifelong traveller, Paige is now the mother of two young daughters, ages three and one. Her partner was born and raised in Nelson and this very outdoorsy family is delighted to be in a place where they can pursue their love of nature and enjoy activities that include skiing, mountain biking, and rock-climbing. Paige is excited to be the face of the team in the Kootenays and to be part of a growing and thriving human-relations focused boutique firm.
