BARRIE—Justice Jodie-Lynn Waddilove looks forward to her new role after being appointed as one of five new justices to the Ontario Court of Justice, effective Dec. 26.

“It’s been a long-term goal of mine professionally,” says Waddilove, a Munsee Delaware Nation citizen who was called to the bar in 2004 after studying law at the University of Ottawa. “So it was a surprise that it happened, but it was also like ‘my goodness, finally’. So it was a sense of accomplishment as well.”

Waddilove says she wanted to be a lawyer since she was 10-years-old.

“I dreamed of being a lawyer and when I was 26, I became a lawyer,” Waddilove says. “And I’ve been working ever since I was 26 as a practicing lawyer. Shortly after becoming a lawyer, learning about the role of judges and what judges do, it was something I aspired to do.”
