Catholic Women's League of Saskatchewan

Back to Executive

Chantal Devine



I've been a member of the Catholic Women’s League since 1975. I served on the executive of Christ the King CWL in Regina as secretary and as president. In 2002, my husband and I left Regina, and moved to our ranch 30 minutes NW of Moose Jaw where we lived for 16 years. We were members of St. John the Evangelist Church in Marquis where I led the music ministry and served as legislation, resolutions and communications chairperson, and as secretary on the CWL Parish Council. In January 2018, we moved to Saskatoon and are members of Holy Spirit Parish. 


I joined the Regina Diocesan Executive in 2008 and was chairperson of Christian family life and legislation, and served as Regina Diocesan President from 2011-2013. In June 2013, I joined the Provincial CWL Executive as communications chairperson and was also appointed to the board of The Catholic Health Ministry of Saskatchewan. From June 2015 to June 2017, I served as first vice president and spiritual development chair, and on June 6, 2017, I began my two year term as president elect and organization chair. On June 3, 2019, at the 71st Provincial CWL Convention held in Humboldt, Saskatchewan, I was installed as president of the Provincial  CWL Council. I completed my eligibility to serve on the Emmanuel Care board (formerly known as the Catholic Health Ministry of Saskatchewan) on June 17, 2019 after serving three consecutive year terms.


As a result of being raised in a tri-lingual family and spending five years growing up in Europe, I speak French and Luxembourg German. I am a French teacher and have taught for several years and continue to substitute teach with the Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools. 


My husband, Grant Devine, served as Premier of Saskatchewan for two terms which offered me the opportunity to meet and interact with many interesting people at home and abroad. We were exposed to numerous ethical, social and economic policy issues over that period of public life. We will be celebrating our 53rd  Wedding Anniversary on July 23, 2019. We have five children, thirteen grandchildren with another on the way, and one great-granddaughter.


When I am not babysitting and spending time with my family, you will find me involved with theatre, golfing, reading or playing bridge.
