Provincial Court Judge Appointed in Saskatoon

Released on March 28, 2014

The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased to announce the appointment of Byron Wright as a judge to the Provincial Court in Saskatoon.

“Judge Wright has extensive experience in various areas of law,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Gordon Wyant said.  “His knowledge as both a criminal defence lawyer and prosecutor over the past 27 years will be beneficial as he transitions into the role of a Provincial Court judge.”

Judge Wright graduated from the College of Law at the University of Saskatchewan and was called to the Bar in 1987.  For several years, he worked in private law firms with a focus on civil, criminal and family law litigation.  In 1998, he joined the public service as a Prosecutor in Saskatoon with the Public Prosecution Service of Canada.  During that time, he also served in senior leadership roles, including Associate Chief Federal Prosecutor for Saskatchewan for the past six years.

Judge Wright has also been an executive member of the Saskatoon Bar Association and has served on the Board of Directors for the Persephone Theatre.

Judge Wright replaces Marty Irwin, who is retiring.
