The Honourable Tracey L. Clements was born and raised in the small community of High Bank, Prince Edward Island. She chose to remain in the Maritimes for her education, receiving a Bachelor of Arts and a law degree from the University of New Brunswick. Following her studies, she joined the firm of Stewart McKelvey, where she developed a general litigation practice, including labour and employment, and human rights law. She was appointed to the Supreme Court of Prince Edward Island on March 8, 2017.
Prior to her appointment to the judiciary, Chief Justice Clements dedicated her career to upholding the values and fairness that our legal system demands. However, she is most proud of her community contributions, including her work as President of the Board of Directors of Sport PEI, as Chair of the Insurance Section of the PEI Branch of the Canadian Bar Association, and as a member of the Law Society of PEI’s Continuing Legal Education Committee. She and her husband live in Mermaid with their four children.
