Message from the Director of Public Prosecutions

I am pleased to present the Annual Report 2012–2013 of the Public Prosecution Service of Canada (PPSC).

The PPSC prosecutes cases under federal law and provides high-quality legal advice to investigative agencies. As an independent and accountable prosecuting authority, the PPSC provides its services in a manner that is fair, impartial, and objective.

Over the past year, the PPSC has demonstrated excellence in the criminal justice field. With a caseload of broad scope and complexity, PPSC staff have conducted many significant and high-profile files.

The PPSC Executive Council has set priorities for 2013–2014 that reflect the operational nature of the PPSC’s mandate.

These priorities include the personal security of employees, ensuring staff are deployed effectively and have the resources they need, continuing to invest in training and development, and working more collaboratively with investigative agencies.

I would like to thank all PPSC staff for their continued hard work and dedication. They exemplify the PPSC’s core values of respect, integrity, excellence, and leadership.

Signature of Brian Saunders

Brian Saunders
Director of Public Prosecutions
