Crown Counsel

Fax: 604-870-5403

Unit 200 2845 Cruickshank Street
Abbotsford, British Columbia   V2T 6X1
Crown counsel are prosecutors who work for B.C.’s prosecution service - the Criminal Justice Branch of the Ministry of Justice. The Criminal Justice Branch operates independently of government and within the justice system. They do not represent the government, the police or the victim of an offence. The courts have described the role of Crown counsel in Canada as a quasi-judicial function and a matter of significant public duty. In our system of justice, when a crime is committed against a victim, it is also a crime against our society as a whole. Therefore, prosecutors do not represent individual victims; they perform their function on behalf of the community.

Crown counsel are entrusted with the prosecution of all offences and appeals in British Columbia related to the Criminal Code of Canada and provincial regulatory offences. Crown Counsel advise government on all criminal law matters and develop policies and procedures for the administration of criminal justice in British Columbia.
