Judge Lindy Choy


Judge Lindy Choy was born in Brandon, Manitoba to Kenny and Rebecca Choy.  She and her sisters are the fourth generation of Choy’s living in Canada, but only the first generation to actually be born here.  While growing up, Judge Choy often worked evenings and weekends with her family at their restaurant, Soo’s Chop Suey House, but always knew she wanted to be a lawyer.

After graduating from Vincent Massey High School in Brandon, she moved to Winnipeg to attend the University of Manitoba.  She obtained a Bachelors Degree in Arts, majoring in political studies, then attended Robson Hall to study law.  She graduated from law school on the Honour Roll, finishing fourth in her graduating class.  She then articled for the firm Thompson Dorfman Sweatman and continued on as an associate, practicing civil litigation.

In 1996 she and her husband Rob moved to Brandon where she practiced law with Roy, Johnston and Company.  It was there that she had her two children, Danielle and Ryan, in the same hospital where she was born.  In 2002, the family returned to Winnipeg where she resumed practice with TDS.  An opportunity then arose with the Appeal Commission for the Workers Compensation Board and she was appointed as a Presiding Officer.

Judge Choy has always been committed to giving back to the community and has served on the boards of the Manitoba Children’s Museum and the United Way of Winnipeg.  She also manages an all-women dragon boat team which participates in the annual River City Dragon Boat Festival.

In 2015, she was appointed to the Provincial Court of Manitoba where she is proud to preside as the first judge in Manitoba of Chinese descent.
