Wellington County Committee

OJEN’s Wellington County Committee is made up of volunteers from both the justice and education sectors. It’s called the “Wellington County” committee because we’re based in the Guelph legal community. Wellington and Dufferin are in different judicial districts, with limited overlap between them.

Our co-chairs are Justice Tom Stinson, Regional Senior Justice of the Peace, and Sandy Kritzer, Curriculum Leader at the Upper Grand District School Board.
