Judicial Appointments

Lawyers with at least 10 years at the Bar can apply to become an Alberta Provincial Court Judge.
Applications are considered first by the Judicial Council, which makes recommendations. The Provincial Court Nominating Committee (PCNC) decides whether or not recommended applicants will be interviewed by the PCNC.

Only candidates recommended for appointment by the PCNC are placed on the Appointment Eligibility List from which the Minister of Justice selects a candidate to fill a vacancy on the Court.
