Message from the Attorney General and Accountability Statement
In British Columbia, the Attorney General is the chief law officer for the province and the official legal advisor to the Lieutenant Governor and members of Cabinet. The Ministry of Attorney General serves the people of British Columbia in the administration and advancement of law and justice and multiculturalism.
This report summarizes my Ministry's progress and significant work undertaken during the 2005/06 fiscal year towards our goals and objectives for both the justice system and my multiculturalism mandate.
During the past year my Ministry has introduced reforms and innovations to ensure that the law and the justice system continue to be fair, accessible and responsive to British Columbia's diverse society.
I am very pleased to present the achievements that have enhanced the justice system, promoted multiculturalism, and moved us closer to our goals and to government's ultimate vision for a prosperous and just province.
The 2005/06 Ministry of Attorney General Annual Service Plan Report compares the actual results to the expected results identified in the Ministry's 2005/06 – 2007/08 Service Plan Update. I am accountable for those results as reported.
