Provincial Court Judge Appointed in Saskatoon

Released on March 23, 2018

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

“Judge Crooks is an exceptional appointment to the bench,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Don Morgan said.  “Her contributions to the legal profession in the province over the last 12 years have been incredibly valuable.  Her commitment to public service and diverse experience will enhance the judicial system in our province.”

Judge Crooks received a law degree from the University of Saskatchewan in 2004.  She articled with the Department of Justice Canada and began her career with a general litigation practice on behalf of many federal government departments.  She was appointed to the Parole Board of Canada in 2013 and has served as a board member since that time.

Judge Crooks is Métis and was raised in Southern Saskatchewan.  She has dedicated her legal career to the public service.  She is the Chairperson of the Aboriginal Circle, a national committee for the Parole Board of Canada, that provides advice on issues affecting Aboriginal offenders, victims and communities.  She also sits nationally on the Executive Committee of the Parole Board of Canada.  This role helps shape policy and direction of the board, interpreting legislative change and providing leadership and guidance, particularly on Aboriginal issues.
