The CBABC Women Lawyers Forum is thrilled to announce the recipients of the WLF awards:

- Debra Van Ginkel, QC Mentoring Award: Rita Andreone, QC
The 2019 WLF Awards Gala takes place in the evening on April 11, 2019 and will celebrate the accomplishments of these two women in the legal profession.
We are pleased to welcome Justice Catherine Fraser, Chief Justice of Alberta, the Northwest Territories, and Nunavut as the keynote speaker. Chief Justice Fraser was the first female Chief Justice appointed to a provincial court of appeal, and is currently the longest-serving Chief Justice in Canada. We are honoured to have a speaker who has been a trailblazer for women in law and who so perfectly exemplifies the Excellence and Mentoring Awards.
