The Minister of Justice prepares a "Charter Statement" to help inform public and Parliamentary debate on a government bill. One of the Minister of Justice's most important responsibilities is to examine legislation for consistency with the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms ["the Charter"]. By tabling a Charter Statement, the Minister is sharing some of the key considerations that informed the review of a bill for consistency with the Charter. A Statement identifies Charter rights and freedoms that may potentially be engaged by a bill and provides a brief explanation of the nature of any engagement, in light of the measures being proposed.

Under the new judicial application process introduced by the Minister of Justice on October 20, 2016, any interested and qualified Canadian lawyer or judge may apply for federal judicial appointment by completing a questionnaire. The questionnaires are then used by the Judicial Advisory Committees across Canada to review candidates and submit a list of “highly recommended” and “recommended” candidates for consideration by the Minister of Justice. Candidates are advised that parts of their questionnaire may be made available to the public, with their consent, should they be appointed to the bench. The information is published as it was submitted by the candidates at the time they applied, subject to editing where necessary for privacy reasons.

The Department of Justice supports the Attorney General as a chief law officer of the Crown both in terms of the ongoing operations of the government as well as the development of new policies, programs and services for Canadians to support the Government's priorities.

The Department provides an integrated suite of common legal advisory, litigation, legislative and regulatory drafting services to the government through: a network of 42 departmental legal services units (DLSUs) and 4 departmental regulations sections, which are co-located with client departments and agencies and organized along five portfolios - Aboriginal Affairs; Business and Regulatory law; Central Agencies; Public Safety, Defence and Immigration; and Tax Law Services; specialized legal capacities within national headquarters, including the Litigation Branch, the Legislative Services Branch, and the Public law Section which are organized into the Justice Portfolio; and a network of regional offices and sub-offices providing local level services to federal departments and agencies in the North, British Columbia, the Prairies, Ontario, Quebec, and the Atlantic provinces.

The Department is committed to providing high-quality services to support government. As one of a series of ongoing initiatives to support this commitment to service quality, a standardized approach to obtaining client feedback on legal services was implemented in 2006.
