Appointments Process

The Judicial Appointments Advisory Committee was formed in 1988, and the Justices of the Peace Appointments Advisory Committee, in 2007. These committees operate independently of the Ontario Court of Justice. As a convenience, information about their procedures and their work are included here.

Application Form

If you submitted an application to a specific region and did not receive an acknowledgment e-mail, please contact us at to check the status of your application submission. Due to a high volume of inquiries, it may take us a few days to provide a response. We will respond to all inquires.

  • The JPAAC application form is available during an advertising period only. Applications for justice of the peace positions are no longer accepted on an ongoing basis.

Please note that the application form frequently changes between advertising periods. If you are using adaptive technologies, please contact the JPAAC Coordinator at to request an alternative format.
