Please read the next four paragraphs plus the additional information set out by location below before answering Section 4 of the Application Form.

Vacancies are advertised by location referencing the name of a municipality where a criminal court of the Ontario Court of Justice is located (e.g., London, Cornwall).  Assignments will be at this court location and other courts within the region.

The province is divided into seven regions.  These regions are listed below.  The locations that may be advertised, in the event of a vacancy, are listed under each region.

Justices of the peace are expected to be available to travel, sometimes on short notice, within their region.  In addition, there is regularly scheduled travel associated with many locations.  Subject to change, these regular travel assignments are also noted below.

The ratio of the total number of assignments connected to criminal court compared to the number of assignments connected to Provincial Offences Act (POA) court varies from one location to another.  Most of the POA assignments involve the Highway Traffic Act.  Where available, and subject to change, the ratio of Criminal Code (CC) related assignments to POA related assignments is also noted below.
