Karen Wilford

Karen obtained her Bachelor of Laws from the University of Western Ontario in 1985. She was called to the Bar of Ontario in 1986, the Bar of Nunavut in 2004 and the Bar of the Northwest Territories in 2006. Following a rewarding practice in family law in central Ontario, she moved with her family to Nunavut in 2004, on a two year contract. Fifteen years later, the enchantment of the North, with its compelling intersection of law and culture, keeps her feet firmly rooted to tundra and rock. Currently the Executive Director of the Northwest Territories Legal Aid Commission, she serves with respect on the traditional land of the Dene in Treaty 8 Territory.
