Biography of Kim Pate, C.M.
Kim Pate, C.M., is a leading advocate for the rights of some of Canada's most victimized, marginalized and criminalized - women and girls who are incarcerated or who have been in prison.
Since 1992, Pate has served as executive director of the Ottawa-based Canadian Association of Elizabeth Fry Societies, which provide support and advocacy for women and girls who are currently or have been imprisoned, including members of some of the most vulnerable groups in society.
Pate has been active on matters such as The Arbour Inquiry (1996), which investigated events at the Prison for Women in Kingston, Ontario. More recently, she has been involved in the inquest into the death of 19-year-old Ashley Smith while Smith was in prison.
A teacher and a lawyer by training, Pate received her B.Ed P.D.P.P. at the University of Victoria, Faculty of Education (1981) and then earned her LLB from Dalhousie University, Faculty of Law (1984). In 2007, she received her M.Sc.Dip (Forensic Mental Health) from James Cook University in Queensland, Australia (2007).
She is a part-time common law professor at the University of Ottawa, Faculty of Law. On July 1, 2014, Pate began a one-year term as the Ariel F. Sallows Chair in Human Rights at the University of Saskatchewan, College of Law.
She has authored many articles in academic journals, such as Canadian Woman Studies and Journal of the Institute of Criminology. Pate has acted as a mentor and guide to women and law students, and additionally, served on the advisory board of the National Women's Legal Mentoring Program (2002-13).
Pate is the recipient of many awards and honours. Most recently, she was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada for advocating on behalf of women who are marginalized, victimized or incarcerated, and for her research on women in the criminal justice system (June 2014).
Among her other honours, Pate received the Women's Legal Education and Action Fund Equality Award (2010), the Canadian Bar Association's Touchstone Award for furthering equality in the legal community in Canada (2009), and the Law Foundation of Ontario's Community Leadership in Justice Fellowship (2006).

“That would lead me to believe that there hasn’t been a significant downtrend in the use of Seroquel,†said Kim Pate, executive director of Elizabeth Fry Societies of Canada.
A former inmate of the Joliette Institution for Women from July 2009 to June 2011, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said she was prescribed Seroquel after complaining of having trouble sleeping.
“I heard a lot of my friends were on Seroquel because they had problems sleeping,†she said.
Just a few days later, she requested to be taken off the drug.
...
“Oftentimes the biggest complaint we have from people working in the prisons, staff, is that women are very emotional, †said Pate of the Elizabeth Fry Societies.
