The Public Prosecution Service of Canada (PPSC) is a federal government organization responsible for the prosecution of criminal offenses under federal jurisdiction. Our organization consists of approximately 1000 employees in regional offices across the country who all play a key role in strengthening Canada’s criminal justice system. In the territories, the PPSC also prosecutes all offences under territorial legislation.
Nunavut is an Inuit territory, where societal values are guided by the principles of Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit (Inuit Traditional Knowledge). As a PPSC employee, you will have a particular responsibility to respect traditional approaches to justice, including restorative justice programs that incorporate Inuit values and culture, and embody the spirit of Inuit Qaujmajatuqangit. The Nunavut Regional Office embraces a welcoming, culturally sensitive and representative workplace. Inuktitut, as well as English and French, is widely spoken within the office. Inuit culture is celebrated. Impromptu, as well as work-related, gatherings occur to share country food such as bannock, seal, caribou and fish.
Whitehorse is Yukon’s capital and a major northern hub. It enjoys facilities, services and businesses far beyond the expectation of a city of 30,000. It's a big little city surrounded by wilderness with the amenities of a much larger destination paired with the friendly demeanour of a close-knit community.
Additional benefits of working at the PPSC Iqaluit and Whitehorse offices include guaranteed subsidized housing (Iqaluit only), an isolated post allowance (Northern Allowance) and vacation travel assistance (VTA). The amount fluctuates but will support you to travel on vacation outside of the territory.
As part of the senior leadership team, you will be uniquely positioned to lead and influence the delivery of federal prosecution services. You will also be part of a collaborative and supportive group of national management colleagues and corporate services specialists. It is an opportunity to mentor colleagues on their professional journey as they prosecute cases at the highest levels, mentor Team Leaders as they grow in their management positions and be part of decisions that will have a meaningful impact in the lives of all employees in the organization.
All supervisors have some similar traits, but the diversity of the PPSC’s regions and of each supervisor’s interests and approaches allows them to place their own “stamp” on the position - whether it be on cases or the development of the PPSC workforce. Each supervisor makes an essential contribution, within their region and nationally, to creating a high functioning and effective team of managers. As part of the senior executive team, you will be part of this team, working collaboratively and benefiting from others’ experiences, as they will from yours.
