The Government of Saskatchewan is pleased to announce the appointment of Jane Marie Wootten as a judge to the Provincial Court in Saskatoon. 

"Judge Wootten has had an exceptional legal career and we are proud to see her join Saskatchewan's Provincial Court," Justice Minister and Attorney General Gordon Wyant said.  "She has an inherent understanding of the fairness, kindness and empathy required of a Provincial Court Judge, and will make an excellent addition to the judiciary." 

Judge Wootten received her law degree from the University of Saskatchewan in 1990 and articled with Pederson Rourke Pinch in Saskatoon. She was called to the bar in 1991 and took a position shortly after with Kraus McKay Pederson.

In 2003 she began a career in the public sector, accepting a position as Senior Counsel with SGI. In that position she has acted as legal counsel on a wide variety of matters related to insurance claims, and provided legal advice on the interpretation of insurance legislation and policies. 

During her career, Judge Wootten has taken an active role in mentoring junior lawyers at SGI, and has been critical in educating stakeholders and the public about various aspects of The Automobile Accident Insurance Act.

Judge Wootten also received a Master's Degree in Business Administration from Royal Roads University in 2004.
