The Real Estate Foundation of BC is pleased to announce the appointment of our newest Governor: Robert Stewart, a general solicitor from Prince George. Roberta has been appointed by the Real Estate Council of BC for a three-year term.

A partner at Heather Sadler Jenkins LLP, Roberta practices law in the areas of residential and commercial property, wills and estate planning, estate administration, commercial loans, and corporate and business transactions.

“With a strong background in real estate law and experience in non-profit governance, Roberta is a terrific fit for REFBC’s Board of Governors,” said CEO Jack Wong. “I’m looking forward to her contributions to the Foundation’s work.”

Roberta is an active member of the Prince George community and contributes her time to the Prince George Chamber of Commerce, the Prince George Estate Planning Council and Partnerships British Columbia. She currently serves as Chair of the MS Society, BC & Yukon Division.

In her spare time, Roberta enjoys camping, boating, fishing and running half-marathons.


The Foundation is directed by a seven-member Board of Governors. The British Columbia Real Estate Association, the Real Estate Council of British Columbia, and the Real Estate Institute of British Columbia each appoint one member. The BC Minister of Finance appoints three members, and the Union of BC Municipalities appoints one member.
