Peter Shrimpton

After growing up in Germany and England, Peter returned to his birth place of Vancouver to attend St. George’s School. Upon attaining a first class undergraduate degree at U.B.C. (University of British Columbia) in 1983, he moved over to the University of Victoria to obtain his Juris Doctor degree at the law school there (1986). After articles (legal apprenticeship), Peter travelled the world, including a winter mono-skiing in the Alps.

In 1988, he decided to pursue the private practice of law, following in the footsteps of his grandfather (a solicitor in London, England from 1931 to 1958) and of his father (a solicitor in Vancouver from 1958 to 2008).

Early in his career Peter created and presented several dozen public presentations to large community audiences on a wide range of legal topics. He then furthered his contribution to increasing accessibility to the law for laypeople by writing frequently in publications serving Vancouver’s various ethnic communities.

He remembers his greatest legal achievement in those formative years as setting up the legal structure for B.C.’s Business Improvement Areas. Peter’s community-mindedness continued after his move to Whistler.

After almost a decade on the Board of the Whistler Youth Soccer Club, he took the helm and for 7 years of tremendous growth served as its President. He was recognised for his contribution in 2009 with the Sport B.C. Community Sports Hero award and again in 2013 with the B.C. Soccer Award of Merit. You can view the short video on the left of this page regarding the first award.

Besides providing pro bono legal advice to numerous non-profits and charities, Peter co-founded and served as Board Chair of The Whistler Forum for Dialogue and Innovation, as well as for the Whistler Village Church. He was also Board Chair for the Whistler Skiers Chapel, which then became the Whistler Interfaith Society.

He continues to devote much of his time to volunteering, thereby also maximizing the benefit that his four children gain from living in the world’s best community.
