Rendina Hamilton was born and raised in Vancouver. In 1956 she graduated first in her University of British Columbia law class and was awarded the Law Society’s gold medal.
The pursuit of legal excellence continued to be a constant thread winding through her busy life and in 1983 she was appointed Queen’s Counsel, respected by colleagues and known for her mastery of the law.
Beyond this and meritorious on its own, is her leadership and sustained service to her community of Kelowna and her province over four decades. She has contributed her wise counsel, diplomacy, and remarkable common sense to a long and eclectic list of organizations ranging from public and post-secondary education, and health care, to heritage foundations, libraries and athletics.
Rendina Hamilton is currently the B.C. director of the Heart and Stroke Foundation, commissioner of the B.C. Financial Institutions Commission, chancellor of the Diocese of Kootenay, on the national executive council of the Anglican Church of Canada, and on the B.C. Tel Board of Directors.
In addition, she continues to share her talent and energy with community organizations, including the Canadian Federation of University Women, Kelowna Friends of the Library and Kelowna Chamber of Commerce.
Rendina Hamilton’s pursuit of truth and fairness has served her well in her career and in her dedication to others.
