Notes:

The salaries of prosecutors and lawyers in some regions of Canada continue to increase, which affects PPSC’s ability to retain its highly skilled prosecutors, hence creating a personnel shortage. Due to the competition for scarce resources, not all vacant positions were filled.

Funding associated with the moving of headquarters staff was not used in 2007-2008 as no office space was available. PPSC is working closely with Public Works and Government Services Canada to identify office space for the PPSC headquarters.
