Born in London, England, Stewart immigrated to Canada with his family as young boy. He was raised in and around Calgary, Alberta and graduated from St. Mary’s High School. After high school, he completed a Business degree at the University of Calgary. Stew then worked as a Cost Control Analyst and Project Manager with Gulf Canada Resources for 3 years, while continuing his education and attaining the final level of a Certified Management Accounting designation.
Stewart next ventured off to the University of Victoria where he obtained his Bachelor of Laws degree. He returned to Calgary with his two young children and started his legal career with one of the large downtown firms. It wasn’t long before he decided he preferred to work more directly with people. Consequently, he and his young family relocated to Cranbrook in 1990 where he raised his children.
In the past, Stewart has been active in the Kinsmen Club, his Church Council, and the District Recreation Project Society. He also was a member of the Rossland Neighbourhoods of Learning Committee, the Director of the Cranbrook Youth Soccer Association, and the Continuing Legal Education Director in the East Kootenays for more than 15 years. He has also served as Vice President of a local provincial political riding association, as Director of the local Brain Injury Association, as Advisor to the Judicial Council of BC in selecting provincial court judges, and as a member of the Auto Insurance Committee of the Canadian Bar Association – BC branch.
