Justice of the Peace Appointment and Remuneration Committee Call-Out

The Justice of the Peace Appointment and Remuneration Committee (JPARC) is now accepting written expressions of interest from eligible Nunavummiut wanting to be appointed as a community Justice of the Peace with the Nunavut Court of Justice (NCJ).

Justices of the Peace preside over a wide range of administrative and adjudicative matters brought to court such as performing marriages to signing search warrants and conducting bail hearings. Specialized training is provided to perform more in-depth hearings.

The NCJ is seeking the appointment of qualified individuals to serve as Justices of the Peace in several communities, including Arctic Bay, Clyde River, Gjoa Haven, Kimmirut, Kugluktuk, Naujaat, Pangnirtung, Pond Inlet, Resolute Bay, Sanikiluaq, Sanirajak and Taloyoak.

To be considered for recommendation, applicants must be at least 19 years old and have been a resident of Nunavut for at least 12 months. The JPARC will determine whether a person is qualified for appointment by considering the person’s knowledge of Inuit Societal Values, knowledge of Inuit Language and knowledge of the community in which the candidate would serve if appointed.

Interested individuals can submit a resume, a cover letter setting out their qualifications, as well as the names and contact information of three references. All applications are to be submitted electronically to ncj.chambers@gov.nu.ca. Applications are on-going.

For more information, please contact ncj.chambers@gov.nu.ca, or 867-975-6121.
