The Legal Excellence Program - Montreal and Quebec (PPSC)

Public Prosecution Service of Canada (PPSC) Quebec Regional Office

The PPSC was created on December 12, 2006. Its creation stems from the federal government's decision to make transparent the principle of prosecutorial independence, free from any improper influence. The mandate of the PPSC as an independent organization is to provide prosecutorial advice to law enforcement agencies and to act as prosecutor in matters prosecuted by the Attorney General of Canada on behalf of the Crown. The organization has a regional office in Montreal, composed of approximately 60 prosecutors and more than 38 other employees.

Articling students actively participate in the conduct of litigation. Specifically, they may:

  • appear before tribunals and assist the prosecutor in charge of the file by preparing and presenting the case before these bodies;
  • assist the prosecutor in charge of a case or a prosecution by preparing documents and pleadings and presenting the case in court; and
  • conduct research and participate in writing opinions on legal questions for other government departments or agencies.

How to apply to the PPSC

The next selection process for the position of “Articling Student - PPSC Quebec Regional Office”, will be advertised at the beginning of 2018.
