The Pan Am Clinic Foundation’s

In honour of The Honourable Murray Sinclair.

March 17, 2022

 

 

Presented By

The Pan Am Clinic Foundation’s Fire & Ice Gala has always represented an opportunity to pay tribute to those who make a difference in the community around us. This will never be more true than on March 17, 2022 as we look forward to the privilege of paying tribute to the Honourable Murray Sinclair.

This year’s event centres around a one-hour feature interview with Murray Sinclair, conducted by his personal friend and CBC’s very own, Shelagh Rogers. In light of our current COVID environment, this one-of-a-kind event will be delivered via two platforms:

 

In-person VIP Dinner at the RBC Convention Centre for up to 100 audience members (all COVID regulations and protocols will be in effect)

Live-at-Home Exclusive Access to the program with food and wine provided to enjoy the evening (may decline food & wine to receive an increased Charitable Tax Receipt)

 



 

His Honour’s legal credentials are well known. What is less well known is that he is Anishinaabe and a member of the Peguis First Nation. He is a Fourth Degree Chief of the Midewiwin Society, a traditional healing and spiritual society of the Anishinaabe Nation responsible for protecting the teachings, ceremonies, laws, and history of the Anishinaabe. His Spirit Name is Mizhana Gheezhik (The One Who Speaks of Pictures in the Sky).

His Honour graduated from law school in 1979. He has been involved with the justice system in Manitoba for over 40 years, first as a lawyer representing Indigenous clients, as an Adjunct Professor of Law at Robson Hall, as Associate Chief Judge of Manitoba’s Provincial Court and as a Justice of the Court of Queen’s Bench. He was the first Indigenous Judge appointed in Manitoba and Canada’s second.

He served as Co-Chair of the Aboriginal Justice Inquiry of Manitoba and as Chief Commissioner of Canada’s Indian Residential Schools Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). As head of the TRC, he participated in hundreds of hearings across Canada, culminating in the TRC’s widely influential report in 2015. He also oversaw an active multi-million dollar fundraising program to support various TRC events and activities, and to allow survivors to travel to attend TRC events. In 2017 Governor General Julie Payette awarded him and the other TRC Commissioners the Meritorious Service Cross (Civilian) (MSC) for service to Canada for their work on the TRC.

He was active within the profession and his community and was a member of the faculty of the National Judicial Institute training judges about Indigenous law and social justice issues. He has won numerous awards, including the National Aboriginal Achievement Award, the Manitoba Bar Association’s Equality Award (2001), its Distinguished Service Award (2016) and the CBA President’s medal (2018). He has been named as one of Canada’s Indigenous People’s Counsel (IPC) by the Indigenous Bar Association.

He has received Honorary Doctorates from 19 universities. He retired from the Bench in January 2016, and was appointed to the Senate on April 2, 2016. He retired from the Senate effective January 31, 2021, to return to the practice of law and to mentor young lawyers.

He has been invited to speak throughout Canada and internationally, including the Cambridge Lectures for members of the Judiciary of the Commonwealth Courts.  He continues to maintain an active public speaking schedule and was named the 15th Chancellor of Queen’s University in July 2021.

The Pan Am Clinic Foundation is inviting Manitobans to join us on Thursday, March 17th for a very special Fire & Ice Gala as we pay tribute to the Honourable Murray Sinclair – one of Canada’s true community leaders.
