Colin Edstrom recognized by Kelowna Chamber and BDO as Top 40 under 40

Pushor Mitchell Partner Colin Edstrom is being recognized by the Kelowna Chamber and BDO as part of their Top 40 Under 40 program which recognizes young professionals in our community and their many accomplishments. Colin Edstrom has been a lawyer since 2011 and originally began his legal career in Vancouver before moving back to his hometown of Kelowna in 2016.

Colin primarily focuses on workplace law and assisting businesses in navigating employment, human rights, labour, workers compensation, occupational health and safety, and privacy laws. Colin’s family has resided in Kelowna since the 1930s and he is proud to contribute to his home community. As a workplace lawyer, he has been the first point of contact for many Central Okanagan businesses who – since March 2020 – have struggled with the constantly changing laws pertaining to the workplace. Colin takes great comfort in knowing that he has helped many businesses to stay afloat and has given them peace of mind during these particularly challenging times.

Colin recently joined the partnership at Pushor Mitchell LLP and, in that role, provides leadership throughout the firm. He has served on the board of directors of the Okanagan College Foundation since 2017 and has been a member of its executive committee since 2021. Colin is also a former board member of the Canadian Bar Association Employment Law Group, a former executive member of the Vancouver Bar Association and director of the Vancouver Squash League. Outside of the office, he does his best to provide “leadership” with his five-year-old daughter and three-year-old son.

As a member of the Okanagan College Foundation board, Colin currently acts as chair of the foundation’s governance committee. The foundation raises and manages private resources for the development and expansion of educational programs, services, capital projects and student financial aid through scholarships, bursaries, and grants. Colin also frequently volunteers his time with the Chartered Professional in Human Resources to provide free webinars and presentations to its members. Colin received his Juris Doctor from the University of Victoria and his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Calgary. He was also the first student council president of Anne McClymont when it opened in the mid-’90s. Please reach out to Colin at [email protected] or (250) 869-1114
