Julie Durette is a fluently bilingual lawyer with over 35 years of experience in the private and public sector.

Julie practiced law in NB for over 17 years.  During that time, she acquired extensive experience as a litigator and as an arbitrator/adjudicator appointed pursuant to various collective agreements.  She also conducted and heard numerous applications and complaints as a part-time Alternate Chair of the NB Employment Standard Board and later as Vice Chair of the NB Labour and Employment Board.  

In 2000, Julie was appointed full-time Vice-Chair of the Canada Industrial Relations Board (CIRB).  In this position (2000 – 2007), Julie’s responsibilities included conducting and directing, adjudicative, meditative and consultative processes that resolved important industrial and labour relations disputes in the federal sector.  She has issued decisions in many significant cases before the CIRB.  Julie has heard cases across the country either sitting alone or as a Chair of a panel. She has a solid reputation for conducting hearings, adjudicating and resolving matters in a fair manner.  She has strong interpersonal skills and has demonstrated the consistent ability to work both independently and to seek consensus, where appropriate.

From 2008 to 2013, Julie held the position of General Counsel/Judicial Conduct with the Canadian Judicial Council.  She ensured the efficient management and investigation of complaints relating to judicial conduct and ethics in regard to federally appointed judges.  In this regard, Julie provided legal opinions and recommendations of high quality on a number of complex and sensitive issues.

From 2013 to 2019, Julie was an arbitrator mediator in ON. She was on the list of approved grievance arbitrators for the Ontario Minister of Labour and approved adjudicators for the Federal Superintendent of Bankruptcy.

Julie has been a guest lecturer at the University of Ottawa Law School where she has taught the Administrative Law course in the French Common Law Program.
