MacParland obtained her LLB from Dalhousie University in 1997, and she was admitted to the Ontario bar in 1999. Her professional affiliations include the American Bankruptcy Institute, International Association of Restructuring, Insolvency & Bankruptcy Professionals (INSOL International), International Insolvency Association and the International Women’s Insolvency & Restructuring Confederation.
