At the request of the Attorney General and in accordance with the Justices of the Peace Act, the Justices of the Peace Appointments Advisory Committee invites applications for vacant Justice of the Peace positions in the Province of Ontario.

A Justice of the Peace is an independent judicial officer who presides in court over various proceedings under federal and provincial statutes. Applicants must meet minimum qualifications as set out in the Justices of the Peace Act.

The Justices of the Peace Appointments Advisory Committee reviews and evaluates applications and classifies candidates as “Not Qualified”, “Qualified” or “Highly Qualified”. Classifications are reported to the Attorney General, who recommends candidates for Order-in-Council appointments to the Ontario Court of Justice.

In addition to reflecting the diversity of Ontario’s population, applicants should also display the fundamental skills and abilities, personal characteristics and community awareness attributes set out in the Committee’s General Selection Criteria.

Bilingual positions require a high degree of proficiency in English as well as a superior level of oral and written proficiency in French. As Indigenous people comprise a large percentage of the population in the areas being serviced by the courts in Kenora, London and Timmins, we especially encourage people of Indigenous heritage and people with an in-depth understanding of Indigenous communities and the issues affecting those communities to apply for these vacancies.

For detailed information about these vacancies, minimum qualifications and General Selection Criteria, the required application form, and the Committee’s process, visit the website of the Justices of the Peace Appointments Advisory Committee at www.ontariocourts.ca/ocj/jpaac. See the Committee’s website also to view future vacancies and application deadlines and to sign up for email notifications. Notifications will also be posted on Twitter (@ONAttorneyGen) and LinkedIN (Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General). Applications must be received by the end of business on Tuesday, February 19, 2019.

Applications that arrive after that date, regardless of when shipped, will NOT be accepted. It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure their application is received by the specified date.


PLEASE NOTE: The Justices of the Peace Appointments Advisory Committee is transitioning towards online unpaid advertising only.
