To deliver on this commitment, an independent and non-partisan advisory board has been created that will recommend qualified, functionally bilingual candidates who reflect a diversity of backgrounds and experiences for appointment to the Supreme Court of Canada.

We are thrilled to announce that Susan Ursel has been named to the Independent Advisory Board for Supreme Court of Canada Justices.
