Dear Attorney General:

Pursuant to subsection 16 (1) of the Director of Public Prosecutions Act, I am pleased to present you with the first Annual Report of the Public Prosecution Service of Canada (PPSC). The report covers the first three and a half months of the PPSC's existence, from our creation on December 12, 2006 through March 31, 2007.

In addition to reporting on the establishment of the PPSC, our mandate, and our activities to date, the report describes our plans for moving forward as an integral part of Canada's criminal justice system.

I look forward to our continued work with our federal and provincial partners.

Yours truly,

Signature of Brian J. Saunders
