Justice Hogue is Appointed Commissioner in Charge of the Public Inquiry Into Foreign Interference in Federal Electoral Processes and Democratic Institutions

Chief Justice Manon Savard is pleased to announce the appointment of Justice Marie-Josée Hogue as Commissioner in charge of the Public Inquiry into Foreign Interference in Federal Electoral Processes and Democratic Institutions. The Commission was established by the federal government with the agreement of the leaders of all recognized political parties sitting in the House of Commons. Under the Commission’s terms of reference, a final report is to be submitted to the Governor in Council no later than December 31, 2024.

The Honourable Marie-Josée Hogue was appointed a puisne judge of the Court of Appeal of Quebec on June 19, 2015, after a remarkable career as a civil, commercial, administrative and constitutional litigator. She has extensive experience, having appeared before every jurisdiction in Quebec as well as before the Supreme Court of Canada and domestic and international arbitration tribunals.

There is no doubt that this mandate will be an opportunity for Justice Hogue to apply the talents and skills for which she is known: integrity, open-mindedness and the ability to analyze and synthesize information, coupled with excellent listening skills and outstanding efficiency.

On her own behalf and on behalf of all her colleagues, Chief Justice Savard offered Justice Hogue her best wishes for success, while expressing the fact that she will be missed at the Court.
