A former prosecutor with the Onion Lake Cree Nation is now a provincial court judge in Saskatoon.

Lua Gibb was appointed to the position today.

“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.”

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.

She received her law degree from the University of Saskatchewan in 2005.
