Provincial Court Judge Appointed In Saskatoon

Released on January 31, 2020

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

“It’s an honour to appoint Ms. Gibb, a member of the Onion Lake Cree Nation, to the position of judge in our Provincial Court,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Don Morgan said.  “Judge Gibb brings with her a wealth of knowledge in the areas of Indigenous law, criminal law and restorative justice, and will be an excellent addition to the judiciary in Saskatoon.”

Judge Gibb received her law degree from the University of Saskatchewan in 2005.  After completing her articles with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Justice and Attorney General, Judge Gibb spent time as a provincial prosecutor; crown counsel with the Department of Justice Canada; advocate for the Saskatchewan Advocate for Children and Youth; and as senior counsel with the Public Prosecution Service of Canada.

A member of the Onion Lake Cree Nation in Saskatchewan and an intergenerational residential school survivor, Judge Gibb has dedicated her legal career to creating transformative change in the way the justice system impacts Indigenous persons.  She has been a champion for improving community outcomes through advocacy, reconciliation, and the promotion of access to justice in child welfare and criminal law.

In 2006, Judge Gibb received the Proud Generation award acknowledging young leadership in Saskatchewan.  Additionally, Judge Gibb has served as a faculty member for the National School for Prosecutors, where she delivered training in how Canada’s residential schools have affected the criminal justice system.

She has also served as a member of various legal organizations, including the Canadian Institute for the Administration of Justice, the Saskatchewan Crown Attorneys Association, and the Saskatoon Restorative Justice Action Program.
