New Judge for Saskatoon Provincial Court

Released on April 18, 2013

The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased to announce that Shannon Metivier has been appointed as a judge of the Provincial Court in Saskatoon.

“For the past 20 years, Judge Metivier has practiced extensively in the area of civil litigation,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Gordon Wyant said.  “Her experience as a trial lawyer, her community involvement and her personal attributes makes us confident that she will be an exceptional judge.”

Judge Metivier graduated from the College of Law at the University of Saskatchewan in 1992 and was called to the Bar in 1993.  She has spent her entire career at McKercher LLP law firm in Saskatoon, where she became partner in 2003.  She has appeared before all levels of court in Saskatchewan.

After becoming a partner, Judge Metivier was actively involved in her firm’s administration.  Outside of her legal practice, she has served on a variety of boards including her role as past president of the Lawson Heights Community Association.  She is also a mentor to law students through the Canadian Bar Association mentorship program.

Judge Metivier replaces Judge Bria Huculak, who is retiring from the Court.
