About Marilyn Burns

Marilyn Burns

Before earning her law degree at the University of Calgary, Edmonton-born Marilyn Burns began undergraduate studies by correspondence at Athabasca University, making ends meet delivering newspapers in the early morning hours so she could stay home with her children. The Calgary Herald called Marilyn "a sincere, committed-to-the-cause woman; a single mom who waited until her four kids were older before studying to become a lawyer." An experienced trial (including jury trial) lawyer, Ms. Burns has been described by a client as "velvet over steel" and by the Calgary Sun as a "bundle of verve and veracity."


Since joining McCourt Law Offices over 20 years ago, Marilyn has continued the firm's proud tradition of political activism, finishing 2nd in the 2005 Alberta Alliance leadership race and co-founding what became the Wildrose Party in 2007. After the Wildrose-PC merger under the United Conservative Party banner a decade later, Marilyn founded the Alberta Advantage Party in 2018, becoming its first leader.
