Meghan McCreary, Q.C., Appointed Judge, Representing Saskatchewan

MLT Aikins is pleased to announce the appointment of Meghan McCreary, Q.C., to the Court of Queen’s Bench for Saskatchewan.

On February 22, 2018, Honourable Jody Wilson-Raybould, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, made the announcement.

During her time with MLT Aikins, Madam Justice Meghan McCreary was a partner, practising in the areas of labour and employment, workplace human rights and health care – advising public and private sector employers within unionized and non-unionized workplaces. She has extensive experience in labour relations disputes and negotiations, including collective agreement bargaining, workplace accommodation, drug and alcohol testing and disciplinary and discharge matters. In addition, she has acted as counsel in wrongful dismissal litigation, executive employment negotiations and for employers during strikes and lockouts.

Madam Justice Meghan McCreary received her law degree in 1998 from Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto. During that time, she participated in Osgoode Hall’s Intensive Program in Poverty Law – laying the groundwork for her ongoing professional commitment to working for the community and social justice. After law school, she went on to clerk for the Chief Justice of Saskatchewan and was called to the bars of Saskatchewan (1999) and British Columbia (2001).

Madam Justice McCreary was recognized by Best Lawyers Canada in labour and employment law and has been named one of Canada’s Leading Lawyers in the Canadian Lexpert Legal Directory in employment (management) since 2013. She acts as Chair on the Saskatchewan Arts Board and, since 2015, has acted as Director for the Canadian Association of Counsel to Employers.

Deron Kuski, a partner in the firm’s Regina office, said of the appointment: “Meghan is a key partner in our labour and employment group and will leave a hole in our litigation group in Regina, but she will be an incredible addition to the Court.”

Congratulations Madam Justice McCreary on your new appointment.
