Designation of Queen’s Counsel

by pmnationtalk on December 12, 2014765 Views

Government honours lawyers who have demonstrated exemplary service to the Canadian justice system through their work in the federal public service.

December 11, 2014 – Ottawa, ON – Department of Justice Canada

Today, the Government of Canada recognized seven lawyers in the federal public service as Queen’s Counsel (Q.C.). Formally styled “Her Majesty’s Counsel learned in the law,” the federal Q.C. honours lawyers who demonstrate exemplary service to the Canadian justice system.

The individuals receiving this honour are members of the federal public service who have demonstrated leadership in their professional lives, raised esteem for the legal profession, and made outstanding contributions to the development of the law.

Quick Facts

  • The individuals were designated as federal Q.C.s by the Governor-in-Council, upon recommendation of the Minister of Justice with the assistance of an advisory committee.
  • Individuals were identified and considered according to a number of factors, including their contributions to the development of the law, leadership in their professional and personal lives which has raised esteem for the legal profession, and professional integrity and character.
  • The Q.C.s are being conferred on the anniversary of the Statute of Westminster becoming law on December 11, 1931. The Statute of Westminster granted Canada, and the other Commonwealth Dominions, greater legal and foreign policy autonomy.


“Our Government is pleased to recognize the exemplary public service of those receiving this esteemed Queen’s Counsel designation today – they reflect the highest standards of the legal profession in the public service. An effective justice system is a cornerstone of our democracy, and we commend our public service lawyers for embarking on a role so vitally dedicated to civil service.”

Peter MacKay
Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada<
