The Saskatchewan Branch of the Canadian Bar Association represents over 1,200 lawyers, judges, notaries, law teachers and law students from across the province. As part of their mandate to provide quality training and information to members of the legal profession, the Association holds annual Mid-Winter Meetings in Saskatoon or Regina.
The 2020 Mid-Winter meetings included a presentation by Christopher Donald and Patricia Warsaba titled “Contract Drafting Fundamentals: It is Fun and Not Just for Solicitors”. The 90 minute session centred on the complexity of drafting a contract for a constantly evolving business world.

Saskatoon City Council recently appointed five new members to the board of directors of the Remai Modern art gallery. This is a crucial time for the two-year old Remai Modern as they are about to fill various key leadership positions in the near future.
