OKT is delighted to announce that Cathy Guirguis has been elected OKT’s new Chief Executive Officer, effective January 1, 2024.

Since 2007, Cathy has demonstrated unwavering dedication as a valued member of OKT, advancing Aboriginal and treaty rights through her expertise in litigation and negotiation.

We would like to thank and recognize Renée Pelletier for her commendable service and commitment as OKT’s Managing Partner since 2011. Under Renée’s leadership, OKT experienced tremendous growth and has since received recognition from multiple legal publications such as Lexpert, Best Lawyers in Canada and The Globe and Mail for our work; forging a path for continued success into the future.

The new management team structure takes effect on January 1, 2024.
