Sharae Antley (she/her)
Sharae Antley is Slavey Dené, Cree-Métis, and Canadian. In 2003, she migrated to the West Coast and found her home in Nanaimo on the traditional unceded lands of the Snuneymuxw, Quw’utsun and Tla’Amin Peoples. She is an uninvited guest in these territories, and she acknowledges this with gratitude.
Sharae is an alumnus of the University of Victoria Faculty of Law (UVic Law), where she acted as co-chair for the Indigenous Law Students Association and was awarded the Gervin Métis Award for Distinguished Advocacy and Leadership.
Sharae had the great pleasure of completing her articles at Strain & Company, where she gained valuable court experience, and had the opportunity to complete pro bono work for the Tillicum Lelum Aboriginal Friendship Centre.
Throughout her studies at UVic Law, where she focused on Aboriginal, Indigenous, and human rights issues, Sharae had the opportunity to participate in the Kawaskimhon National Moot which considered Indigenous child welfare issues.
Outside of legal work, Sharae enjoys spending time with her family and pets both on and off Vancouver Island, traveling, drinking coffee, and listening to the occasional (or not so occasional) true crime podcast.
