Tim Howard  |  Lawyer

LLB  – UBC 1994
B.A. – History 1991

Tim’s legal career began in 1995, when he was called to the Bar in BC. After a stint as an associate with a small litigation firm, he joined Ecojustice Canada, a national public interest environmental law firm specializing in strategic environmental litigation. He represented clients on high profile and precedent setting cases at all levels of court, from the BC Supreme Court all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada, and also appeared before the National Energy Board, Forest Appeals Commission and the Environmental Appeal Board.

In 2005 Tim left Ecojustice to join Mandell Pinder, one of Vancouver’s top aboriginal law firms. He continued to litigate leading cases at all levels of court, while developing his skills in consultation engagement and negotiation. In 2010 Tim left Mandell Pinder and moved with his family to the Sunshine Coast, where he established his own law practice to continue serving aboriginal communities. Since 2016 Tim has added training in mediation and dispute resolution to his skill set.

Tim’s focus is on delivering legal services that are timely, cost-efficient and aimed at achieving tangible and enduring benefits to his clients. His work includes acting as counsel on IBA, government-to-government and Treaty negotiations; advising on strategic high level consultation processes; developing protocols, laws and governance processes; and representing clients in court and regulatory reviews of major resource projects.

  I’ve worked with Tim on a variety of projects he has done for the Ktunaxa Nation Council over the last five years, many of them dealing with water, hydro-electric energy and the Columbia River system. Tim always provides and continues to provide very valuable strategic and legal advice which has invariably guided our work in the right direction. I have a high regard for Tim’s work and would recommend his services.”
