The Honourable Arif Virani, Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada, announced the appointment of Catharine Moore, LLB ’92, to the Federal Court.

Associate Judge Catharine Moore is originally from a small town north-west of Toronto. She studied at the University of Ottawa and was called to the Ontario Bar in 1994. 

Associate Judge Moore spent her career as a civil litigator with the Department of Justice Canada in both the Toronto Regional Office and at headquarters in Ottawa.  Although starting with a broad-based practice covering most aspects of Crown law, her focus for the last twenty years has been exclusively in the area of class proceedings.  She has been lead litigation counsel on numerous high profile and sensitive class proceedings against Canada.

Associate Judge Moore has been an active contributor to legal education and mentoring both within the Department of Justice Canada and the wider legal community, including teaching civil procedure to upper year law students at the University of Ottawa. She is a past member of both the Ontario Superior Court Bench and Bar, Class Actions Section and the Federal Court Class Action Liaison Committee, and a frequent panelist at continuing legal education events.

Congratulations to Justice Moore on this appointment!
