This Day In The History of the Supreme Court of Canada: Bertha Wilson Becomes First Woman SCC Justice

Well, it was really yesterday March 4.

On March 4, 1982, Bertha Wilson was the first woman justice named to the Supreme Court. Her nomination occurred just 17 days before the Charter of Rights and Freedoms was enacted.
