Profile – Alma Wiebe, Q.C.

Alma graduated with a Bachelor of Law in 1978 and has been practicing law in Saskatchewan since her admission to the Bar in 1979. Her practice, for many years, consisted primarily of litigation. In 2004 she shifted her emphasis from litigation to workplace harassment and misconduct investigations, labour arbitrations, coroner’s inquests and administrative tribunal work.

She is a Past-President of the Law Society of Saskatchewan, served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Law Foundation of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan College of Physicians and Surgeons as well as being a sessional lecturer at the University of Saskatchewan College of Law. She is a professional discipline chair, arbitrator, Inquest Coroner and a public presenter.

Alma has practiced law for more than 39 years. Her education, experience and skill as a litigation lawyer and as an interest-based negotiator – interviewing analyzing information, identifying issues, assessing credibility and writing clearly and concisely – are critical to her success as an investigator of all kinds. She has conducted more than 100 harassment, professional conduct and other workplace investigations for healthcare institutions, educational institutions, professional governing bodies, First Nations, government departments, industry, private business and Unions.

Alma has been appointed as Chair to numerous labour arbitration panels and has written decisions on a variety of labour/management issues.

She became a Coroner for the Province of Saskatchewan in 2002 and has conducted more than 30 Inquests since then.

She is a current Chair of the College of Physicians and Surgeons Discipline Committee and serves as counsel to other professional governing bodies.
