Sara Mainville has been called to the Ontario Bar since 2005. Sara has a Management degree (Lethbridge) and a LLB (Queen’s). Sara has earned an LLM (Toronto) which has engaged her in a lifetime study of Indigenous jurisdiction’s important role in legally reconciling Indigenous sovereignty in Canada. She has practised law as a solo practitioner and taught jurisprudence to undergraduate students after being an Associate for a well-known Anishinaabe-led law firm in Ontario. In 2014, Sara was elected Chief of Couchiching First Nation. She returned to law in 2016 and recommitted to Indigenous jurisdiction through cannabis, gaming and tobacco work with First Nations. Sara Mainville is also very proud of her participation in the negotiations that led to the creation of the First Nation Sovereign Wealth LP, a partnership of 129 First Nations in Ontario that involved 14 million Hydro One shares and $29 million in seed capital. Sara Mainville has a unique perspective to share from the vantage point of Indigenous citizen of a Nation strongly aligned with their own sovereignty, a former Chief, and as a legal practitioner within her own Indigenous legal order. Sara practises across Canada and is licenced in Ontario and British Columbia.
