Manitoba Queen’s Counsels / King’s Counsels

The appointment of a lawyer as a Queen’s Counsel (or a King’s Counsel depending on the gender of the reigning monarch) was an honour recognizing exceptional professional ability in Manitoba’s legal profession. Recipients append the letters QC or KC after their name, and are permitted to wear unique silk robes in court and to speak first during legal proceedings.

The practice of appointing Queen’s Counsels in Manitoba began in 1909 and continued annually, usually with announcements around New Years Day each year. The total number of lawyers holding QC/KC designation was fixed so the number of appointments made at any one time was determined by how many recipients had died or been elevated to the judicial bench in the preceding year. No appointments were made in 1973 because, according to NDP Attorney-General Alvin Mackling, they “had become meaningless because of the method by which they were made.” Despite these reservations, the provincial government resumed making appointments in 1975. (The federal government was also capable of making appointments.) It stopped again in 1987 pending a study into the usefulness of the designation, then resumed under a new government in 1989.

In early 2001, the Manitoba provincial government announced that it would discontinue the practice of awarding the designations and would turn over responsibility for them to a group of Chief Justices and the Law Society of Manitoba, with a change in terminology to Senior Counsel. However, the change was never implemented and QCs are no longer awarded. Existing designations remain in effect.

The following is a partial list of Manitoba lawyers who have been given the QC/KC honour, and the year in which they were appointed.
