Bilingual Ontario Court of Appeal justice Mahmud Jamal has been nominated to the Supreme Court of Canada by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Jamal was appointed to Ontario’s top court in 2019 and appeared in 35 appeals before the country’s high court on civil, constitutional, criminal and regulatory issues.
The first person of colour to be nominated to the Supreme Court, he also taught constitutional law at McGill University and administrative law at Osgoode Hall Law School.
Parliament’s justice committee will soon hold a special hearing on Jamal’s nomination.
Jamal will replace Justice Rosalie Abella, currently the longest-serving Supreme Court justice, who will retire July 1 – her 75th birthday.
