Tracy-Anne McPhee

Riverdale South

Minister of Justice, Minister of Education and Government House Leader. Proud to serve the riding of Riverdale South.

Tracy-Anne McPhee has pursued a rather unique legal career living and working in Whitehorse, Yukon for over 23 years.  She is a senior practitioner, educator and consultant.  Her litigation practice focuses on administrative law, labour law, criminal and regulatory prosecutions, and child protection cases.

Always making room for education, she has developed and delivered training to the Yukon Justices of the Peace, numerous seminars focused on administrative law, privacy and courses at Yukon College.  As a partner with On Board Training and Consulting she provides customized training and services to a variety of boards, committees, and tribunals.

Detours from her own practice include being appointed as Yukon Ombudsman and Information and Privacy Commissioner (2007-2012) and development of the Yukon Domestic Violence Treatment Option Court (2001-2004). She also worked as Executive Director of the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre.

Tracy-Anne’s dedication to the legal profession is clear.  Her volunteer work includes senior positions with the Federation of Law Societies, Law Society of Yukon, Maddison Chair in Northern Justice, Yukon Law Foundation and the Canadian Bar Association, both locally and nationally. She has served as board member of the Whitehorse Food Bank and as vice chair of McBride Museum of Yukon History and as Co-Chair of the F.H. Collins School Council.

Tracy-Anne served as Treasurer of the Law Society of Yukon from 1997-2002.  In 2002 she became the first female President of the Yukon Law Society, a position she held for four terms.  In 2006, moving to the national stage, Tracy-Anne became the President of the Canadian Federation of Law Societies – the umbrella organization of Canada’s 14 Law Societies responsible for regulating more than 90,000 Canadian lawyers and notaries, in the public interest.  As the first northerner to serve in that position, she was instrumental in the achievement of the Northern Mobility Agreement.

Formal education includes a Bachelor of Arts from Dalhousie University (1983), a Bachelor of Education from St. Mary’s University (1984) and an L.L.B. from Dalhousie University Law School (1990).  She was admitted to the Law Society of Upper Canada and the Law Society of Yukon in 1992.

Tracy-Anne is an inaugural inductee to the Bertha Wilson Honour Society at Dalhousie University that recognizes extraordinary alumni and their contributions to law and society.  She is a recipient of the Canadian Bar Association Award for outstanding service to the association.

Tracy-Anne McPhee was first elected to the Yukon Legislative Assembly in the general election for the 34th Legislative Assembly on November 7, 2016.

She was appointed to the Executive Council of Yukon (cabinet) on December 3, 2016. She is currently Minister of Justice and Minister of Education. She is also the Government House Leader.

Tracy-Anne is currently a member of the Members’ Services Board. She was appointed to the committee by order of the House on January 12, 2017.
