Ron Ellis Award for Excellence in Workers' Compensation Law


HONOURED AWARD RECIPIENT
ROSEMARIE MCCUTCHEON
CHAIR, WORKPLACE SAFETY AND INSURANCE APPEALS TRIBUNAL (WSIAT)

Rosemarie McCutcheon was appointed as the Chair of the Workplace Safety and Insurance Appeals Tribunal (WSIAT) for a six-month term in August 2019, and then for a two-year term, effective January 9, 2020. Prior to that appointment, Rosemarie was a vice-chair, with concurrent roles in the oversight and delivery of WSIAT’s professional development programs, and later, as Alternate Chair - Registrar. Rosemarie started her legal career in litigation as an articling student, but she has always been interested in public law, having earned the Samuel Lerner Q.C. Prize for attaining the highest combined grades in Public Law, Civil Litigation and Family Law upon her call to the Ontario Bar in 1997. Rosemarie entered the administrative law field as an Associate Counsel to the Chair at WSIAT in 1999. Rosemarie has an LL.M. (Administrative Law) and an LL.B., both from Osgoode Hall Law School. In addition to participation in professional development programs run by organizations such as SOAR and the OBA, Rosemarie is active in her community, serving as the chair of the board of directors of a local charity and volunteering in youth sports and other community events.

The Ron Ellis Award was created to recognize exceptional contributions and/or achievements in the field of workers’ compensation law and Ms. McCutcheon exemplifies that.
