JURISDICTIONAL REPRESENTATIVES

In each member jurisdiction - the federal, provincial and territorial governments - the Conference has a principal representative. Often the jurisdiction is represented by someone on the civil side and someone else on the criminal side. These people provide the main liaison between the Conference and the member governments. They are a good source of information in general on how the Conference operates and on what is being done to carry forward the work of the Conference in their jurisdictions.
