Dear Attorney General:

Pursuant to Section 16(1) of the Director of Public Prosecutions Act, I am pleased to present you with the 2008-2009 Annual Report of the Public Prosecution Service of Canada. The report covers the period from April 1, 2008 through March 31, 2009.

In accordance with its mandate, the PPSC over the past year performed its duties and functions independently, prosecuting offences under federal law on behalf of the Crown and providing legal advice to investigative agencies in respect of potential prosecutions.

PPSC staff perform their role with pride and uphold the highest standards of professionalism in their work. I am grateful for their contributions to the PPSC’s continued success as a key player in the Canadian criminal justice system.

 I look forward to our work with all our partners in making Canada safer.

Yours sincerely,

Brian Saunders' signature

Brian Saunders
Director of Public Prosecutions
