The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased to announce that Morris Mark Baniak has been appointed as a judge of the Provincial Court for Prince Albert.

Baniak has served the community of Saskatoon as a defence lawyer for more than 25 years. A graduate of the University of Saskatchewan, Baniak was admitted to the Bar in 1984 and has been in private practice since. Highly respected within the legal community, Baniak is known as an outstanding individual and lawyer. In his years of practice, he did a significant amount of pro bono work for immigrants to the province.

"I am pleased to be able to appoint this individual to the bench," Justice Minister and Attorney General Don Morgan said. "Judge Baniak has a strong sense of both justice and compassion."

Baniak is extensively involved in his community, lending his time and experience to such varied interests as the board of directors of New Community Credit Union, his church parish, presentations to schools and groups, and volunteering and coaching minor hockey and soccer. He is very proud of his ethnic heritage and speaks English, Polish, Russian and Ukrainian fluently.
