swearing-in ceremony held Friday
afternoon at the Ceremonial Court Room at    the    Calgary    Courts    Center    before Associate     Chief    Justice    John    D.    Rooke and the other justices.   Justice Rooke, in his introduction, praised Justice Ho as a
valuable and welcome member of the bench who will share her extensive legal
experience in Alberta’s judicial system. Born in the Philippines, Bernette Ho was only seven months when her Filipino parents
and four siblings migrated to straight to Calgary, Canada in 1971.  She is of Chinese
descent and when her family arrived in Calgary, her father and mother opened the first
Chinese restaurant in what is today the China town in the center of the city.
She completed all of her early education
in Cochrane, Alberta. Justice Ho initially wanted
to be journalist so she completed her B.A.
(Honours) in Communication Studies from
the University of Calgary (1992).  Her
undergraduate theses on the sub judice rule in
relation to the work of journalists encouraged
her to complete an LL.B from the University of
Alberta (1995). She was called to the Bar
of    Alberta    in    1996.     She    articled    and    continued   on   as   an   associate   and   then   partner   at   the   firm Macleod Dixon LLP (now Norton Rose Fulbright
Canada LLP), working on a wide variety of litigation and regulatory matters before acting
primarily for provincially regulated employers in relation to employment, human rights,
privacy and disability matters. She also acted for energy companies in a wide variety of
litigation and regulatory matters, particularly in relation to the electricity industry. While at
the firm, she was actively involved in management, including serving on the firm's Articling
Committee and Promotions Committee and acting as the Practice Group Leader for the
Calgary Employment and Labour group. She appeared before all levels of court
in Alberta, as well as various regulatory tribunals.
Justice Ho has long believed in the value of community service, as demonstrated by her
volunteer efforts with such organizations as the Calgary Inter-Faith Food Bank, the
Salvation Army, and Theatre Calgary, where she was a member of the Board of Directors.
Professionally, Justice Ho has been a volunteer with the Alberta Bar Admission Course
and with the Law Society of Alberta, where she served on the Professional Responsibility
Committee    and    the    Conduct    Committee.    At    the    time    of    her appointment, she was a member of the Board of Directors for the Legal Education Society of Alberta. Consul General Gilberto Asuque attended the swearing-in
ceremony and conveyed the congratulations of the Philippines and the Filipinos especially in Calgary on her assumption of
judicial duties.   Consul General Asuque
(photo right) expressed the great honor
and pride of the Filipinos in Canada for  having Justice Ho as the first Philippine-
born Canadian to hold a high judicial
position. Justice Ho, her mother Angeline (who has 9 grandchildren and 4
great grandchildren), eldest brother Michael, and three sisters (she
is  the youngest) welcomed guests, fellow justices, Filipino friends,
and members of bar in Alberta at a reception at the Calgary
