He attended law school at McGill University and obtained his Juris Doctor and Bachelor of Civil Law degrees in December 2021.
Sayre is a proud citizen of Métis Nation British Columbia. He is a descendant of the Red River Settlement, although his family’s roots trace most recently to the Métis communities of the Qu’Appelle Valley in Saskatchewan. Throughout his time in law school, Sayre was involved with McGill University’s Indigenous Law Association/Association de droit autochtone. His prior work experience has focused heavily on Indigenous-related matters, including prior experience in self-government agreement negotiations, Aboriginal and Treaty Rights, Indigenous legal traditions, among others.
Outside of the office, Sayre enjoys skiing, spending time with family and friends, and exploring new places at home and abroad. He has a lifelong passion for travel and languages. He has travelled to 17 different countries and has lived in France on two separate occasions. Sayre is fluent in English and French and is hopeful to be fluent in many more languages during his lifetime.
