Hello,

I am interested in knowing if there is a distinction/difference between the roles of a Crown Attorney and a Prosecutor as it relates to court procedure?

Just figured someone here may know. I appreciate the insight. Thanks!

In Canada all cases are prosecuted by either the Federal or Provincial Crown by a delegate of the respective Attorney General. Serious cases (criminal, complex civil cases, etc.) are handled by a Crown Attorney (lawyer), while professionals (who not necessarily lawyers) who deal exclusively with provincial offences (like the HTA) are referred to as Provincial Prosecutors.

Procedure would differ depending on the reason you are in court (criminal vs. provincial offence).
