The Government of British Columbia has appointed a new Supreme Court of B.C. master to ensure the judiciary has the resources needed to continue providing access to justice.

The appointment of Jennifer Keim, who will take her seat in Kamloops, is effective Aug. 1, 2019. Keim received a bachelor of laws from the University of Alberta in 1995 and was called to the B.C. bar in 1996. She joined the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) in 2013, and in 2014 was appointed general counsel, director of legal services and information management and corporate secretary. Keim has provided legal services on a wide range of business initiatives, legislative analysis and corporate governance. Prior to joining BCLC, she worked for more than 16 years in private practice focused primarily on family law. Keim has appeared regularly in both the Supreme Court and provincial court and has been a certified family law mediator since 1999.
