Synopsis
Myrna McCallum began her legal career practising criminal law as defence counsel, then as Crown counsel, in her home territory of northern Saskatchewan (Treaty Six). Through her litigation experience, Myrna was regularly exposed to victims of serious and sexually violent crimes, which led to her growing awareness and substantial insight into the effects of trauma on memory, behaviour, communication and a sense of self or well-being.

Beginning in 2011, Myrna spent 6 years as an Independent Assessment Process Adjudicator for Indian Residential School claims. As tragic as many criminal cases had been, nothing could prepare her for the testimonials she received from hundreds of Indian Residential School survivors. The compassion, understanding and patience she cultivated examining survivors of sexual violence, together with her trauma-informed approach allowed her to adjudicate Indian Residential School claims in a safe, culturally sensitive and respectful manner.

Most recently, Myrna served as UBC's first Director of Investigations and was responsible for establishing the independent investigations office and the creation and implementation of reporting and investigatory procedures consistent with the principles of procedural fairness and the commitments outlined in UBC’s sexual assault & human rights policies.
