Mary Moreau Nominated to Supreme Court of Canada

The Honourable Mary Moreau has been nominated to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court of Canada, which was created by the resignation of Russell Brown. 

Justice Moreau, a franco-Albertan, served as the Chief Justice of the Alberta Court of King's Bench.

She has experience in criminal law, constitutional law, and civil litigation. She litigated matters involving minority language rights and Charter rights. 

She also co-founded the Association des juristes d'expression française de l'Alberta, an organization dedicated to promoting French language rights in the province.

She was president of the Canadian Superior Courts Judges Association from 2011 to 2012. She is also a member of the Action Committee on Modernizing Court Operations, co-chaired by the Minister of Justice and the Chief Justice of Canada.

Her appointment will mean that a majority of the Justices of the Court will be female for the first time in Canadian history.
