Public Prosecution Service of Canada
Montreal, Quebec

The PPSC was created by the Director of Public Prosecutions Act on December 12, 2006, when Part 3 of the Federal Accountability Act came into force. The PPSC is independent of the Department of Justice Canada and reports to Parliament through the Attorney General of Canada.

The mandate of the PPSC aims at providing prosecutorial advice to law enforcement agencies and to act as prosecutor in matters prosecuted on behalf of the Crown. The Quebec Regional Office (QRO) of the PPSC (located in Montreal and Quebec City) is composed of 60 prosecutors.

The QRO of the PPSC is recruiting 2 Articling Students for 2019 (according to operational needs). Articling students actively participate in the conduct of litigation. Specifically, they may: appear before boards, tribunals and other quasi-judicial bodies or assist the lawyer in charge of the file in preparing and presenting the case before these bodies; assist the lawyer in charge of a
case or a prosecution in preparing documents and pleadings and presenting the case in court; conduct research and participate in writing opinions on legal questions for other government departments or agencies.
