Judge Morin was born and raised in Cumberland House, northern Saskatchewan and is a member of the Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation. After starting out in the criminal justice system as a probation officer in 1973, Morin was determined to follow his dream of becoming a lawyer and earned his law degree from the University of Saskatchewan in 1987. After graduating, he began practising law in Prince Albert with Pandila-Morin Law Office, and during this time, he appeared at all levels of court, including the Supreme Court of Canada. In 2001, Judge Morin was appointed to the Provincial Court of Saskatchewan, until he retired in 2019. Morin helped pave the way for the Cree-speaking provincial court system during his years as a judge, sitting in Indigenous communities such as Sandy Bay, Whitefish First Nation, and Ahtahkakoop First Nation. In January 2023, Morin was appointed as an Officer of The Order of Canada “for his groundbreaking contributions to the Cree Court Circuit, and for his mentorship of the next generation of lawyers and judges.”

This event is free and everyone is welcome.
