The position of Crown Council Assistant for Public Prosecutions requires an individual who understands the role of Public Prosecutions within the criminal justice system and Prosecutions’ practices. That includes full facility with Prosecutions’ file and case management systems and communication protocols for dealing with Justice partners.

The successful candidate will be well-organized, self-motivated and efficient. You will work well independently but first and foremost as part of the Prosecutions team.

You will also work well under pressure, as many of the tasks assigned will be highly time sensitive. Equally, the role requires self-setting of deadlines, monitoring of those deadlines, and self-initiated follow-up. Additionally, you will be one who is keen to follow and maintain standard practices, including file organization, while being able to draw on personal initiative and flexibility when change is required.

You will work under the supervision of a Crown Prosecutor and will be expected to communicate in a concise, professional manner with Prosecutors, defence counsel, Provincial Court Officials, R.C.M.P. members, municipal police officers, Victim Services, victims, and other partners in the criminal justice system. This communication may include identifying the need for and making requests for additional investigative information following initial assessment of police files, preparing any correspondence required to ensure that matters are properly and quickly readied for prosecution, organizing disclosure within files if necessary, providing information about upcoming court appearances, and other tasks as identified by supervisors.

You will be able to work independently to compile complete and accurate criminal histories for those appearing before the court, draft other required legal documents, and/or correspondence. You will also be able to provide other docket-related support to prosecutors as the Assistant Deputy Attorney General (Prosecutions) or that person’s designate decides is necessary, which may include attending court to provide support with the dockets. You will be able to prepare hearing and trial binders with minimal to no supervision. You will also be able to provide other trial-related support to prosecutors as the Assistant Deputy Attorney General (Prosecutions) or that person’s designate decides is necessary, which may include attending court to provide support with hearings and trials. You will be comfortable communicating with complainants, witnesses, and victims to provide and obtain appropriate information.

In order to effectively carry out the required duties you will have knowledge of legal (criminal) terminology, the Criminal Code of Canada and the Youth Criminal Justice Act. This will include an in depth knowledge of the legal requirements required to prove an offence contrary to the Criminal Code and the ability to assess the sufficiency of Crown files in relation to those requirements. You will also have an understanding of orders authorized by the Criminal Code including mandatory and discretionary orders. You will have knowledge of Prosecutions policies and be able to apply them in a fast-paced working environment. This will include adhering to policies regarding the collection and release of information and other policies as set by Public Prosecutions. You will also be familiar with and understand Prosecution obligations pursuant to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, the Canadian Victims Bill of Rights Act, The Victims of Crime Act, and other legislation and case law that is applicable to the work of prosecutions.

The ideal candidate must have education in and/or experience supporting the prosecution of criminal or quasi-criminal matters.

We are committed to workplace diversity.
