The Honourable Jody Wilson-Raybould, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, announced on November 29, 2017, the appointment of Justice Suzanne Gagné to the Court of Appeal of Quebec.
Madam Justice Suzanne Gagné received an LL.B. from Université Laval in 1994 and was admitted to the Quebec Bar in 1995. She practised in several different areas of law, first with the firm of Guy Bertrand & Associés from 1995 to 2002, and then with the firm of Létourneau Gagné from 2002 to 2015, where she focused her practice on civil and commercial litigation. In 2012, the Barreau du Québec awarded her the distinction of “Lawyer Emeritus” in recognition of her excellence in professional practice and her standing within the legal profession.
Alongside her professional activities, Justice Gagné has also been active within several organizations, serving as a member of the Grand Jury of Forces Avenir and chairing the board of the Société du Grand Théâtre de Québec from 2010 to 2015.
She was appointed a judge of the Superior Court of Quebec in June 2015. Since then, she has presided in all divisions of that court, including the Criminal and Penal Division. As a lawyer and now as a judge, she has been particularly committed to issues of access to justice and case management.
