An Evening with Loretta Ross, Treaty Commissioner of Manitoba, with elders from Roseau River First Nation

Bring kindness and respect as we grow in awareness.

Loretta Ross (Bimaashi Migizi) is a member of the Hollow Water First Nation in Manitoba and obtained her law degree from Queens’ University. Loretta has been a practicing lawyer for over 20 years and has served as legal counsel to numerous First Nations people, governments and organizations, including the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs and the Assembly of First Nations. Loretta has worked in private practice for a number of years and currently owns the Loretta Ross Law Office.

Over the years, Loretta has served as counsel to a number of First Nations on land issues including specific claims, treaty land entitlement, trusts and hydro development. Loretta’s practice has also included child and family matters and residential school claims. Loretta serves on a number of boards representing First Nations interests. Some of these include the Manitoba Civil Service Commission, the Legal Education Action Fund, the Manitoba Human Rights Commission, Marymound Inc. and the Southern First Nation Network of Care. Loretta is also a member of the board of the Family First Foundation.

The Treaty Relations Commission of Manitoba (TRCM) is a neutral body, created through a partnership between the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs (AMC) and Canada with a mandate to strengthen, rebuild and enhance the Treaty relationship and mutual respect between First Nations and Manitobans as envisaged by the Treaty Parties.

The TRCM will enhance and maintain positive intergovernmental relations and cooperation, conduct independent research that advances discussion on Treaty related issues, and facilitate public understanding of the importance and role of Treaty making in building a stronger and healthier nation.
