The Department

The people of the Department of Justice work to ensure that Canadians enjoy a justice system that is fair, accessible and efficient. We help the federal government to develop policy and to make and reform laws as needed.

At the same time, we serve Canadians by acting as the Government's law firm. Our responsibilities reflect the double role of the Minister of Justice, who is also the Attorney General of Canada: while the Minister is concerned with questions of policy and their relation to the justice system, the Attorney General is the chief law officer of the Crown.

As it has throughout its rich history extending over 130 years, the Department of Justice strives for excellence in the practice of law. It is a leader in Canada and internationally and at the forefront of legal issues that are relevant to the daily lives of Canadians - issues such as human rights, public security, electronic government and bio-technology.

This page provides the mandate, mission and values of the Department of Justice.

Public Consultations
The Department of Justice is committed to encouraging the participation of all Canadians and justice-sector stakeholders in the development of law, policy and programs, as well as in identifying emerging trends in law and policy. To this end, the Department uses many different types of public participation activities, ensuring that a broad cross-section of views are taken into consideration when developing law and policy.

The Department of Justice encourages excellence in every aspect of our justice system. By way of special recognition, the department sponsors a number of awards to celebrate outstanding achievement in upholding and advancing Canada's justice system.
