Superior Court of Quebec welcomes Marie-Hélène Dubé as new judge

Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada David Lametti has announced the appointment of Marie-Hélène Dubé to the Superior Court of Quebec.

“I wish Justice Dubé every success in her new role,” Lametti said. “I know she will serve the people of Quebec well as a member of the Superior Court.”

Justice Dubé has been appointed to the Superior Court as a puisne judge for the district of Montreal. She replaces Justice Johanne Mainville, who elected to become a supernumerary judge in Nov. 2021.

Dubé is a former senior partner at Goldwater, Dubé in Montréal. Practising for over 30 years, she has broad experience in family and civil litigation involving divorce, child custody, parental alienation, wrongful removal of children, unjustified enrichment, property division between spouses, and spousal and child support. She is also an accredited mediator for many family law matters.

In addition, Dubé has participated in prominent Quebec constitutional lawsuits and represented clients in the Superior Court, the Quebec Court of Appeal, and the Supreme Court of Canada.

Throughout her legal career, Dubé has been regularly providing pro bono legal services to improve access to justice in the context of matters of public interest. She also contributes to the legal community by mentoring and training young lawyers. Recently, she teamed up with the École du Barreau du Québec and the Quebec section of the Canadian Association of Black Lawyers to provide training on the right to equality in legal practice.

Dubé has presented at various conferences and contributed to various legal articles, notably as a co-author of the chapters on spousal maintenance in JurisClasseur - Personnes et Famille. Moreover, she is an active member of the Family Law Committee of the Barreau du Québec and the Committee on Ethnocultural Diversity of the Bar of Montreal.

She obtained her law degree from the Université de Montréal in 1990. She was admitted to the Quebec bar in 1991.
