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.

Her education, experience and skill as a litigation lawyer and as an interest-based negotiator are critical to her ability to conduct investigations of all kinds.

She has conducted numerous harassment, professional conduct and other workplace investigations for institutional clients and professional governing bodies.
