Full Description

Department of Justice

The Department of Justice is working to ensure Yukon remains a safe, secure, and healthy place to live and work. We build strong and healthy relationships with others to support good governance and to foster safe communities. The Department of Justice provides supportive and dynamic work environments comprised of teams of professionals who are committed to making a difference in the lives of Yukoners.

The Department is seeking a dynamic, visionary leader to manage and direct the operations of the Whitehorse Correctional Centre. Under the general direction of the Director of Corrections and guided by the principals of the department and branch, you will have responsibility for the allocation of human, financial and material resources to meet the needs of individuals in territorial custody including police prisoners.

The principles that guide the Department of Justice and the Corrections Branch include:

Least Restrictive Measures: The Corrections Branch uses the least restrictive measures with inmates, offenders, police prisoners, and persons who have been granted judicial interim release that is consistent with the protection of those individuals, the public, and staff members.

Reconciliation with Yukon First Nations: Together as Department of Justice (DOJ) representatives we commit to embracing the spirit of the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada entitled Honouring the Truth, Reconciling the Future, by conducting ourselves in our day-to-day business in a manner that embodies the purpose of reconciliation with our First Nations members in the Yukon. We recognize the importance of employee education on First Nations history and the encouragement of innovative thinking by all DOJ personnel on our ability to effect meaningful change towards true reconciliation.

Working as a Team: As DOJ employees we value working together as a team within branches and within the department as a whole, while respecting our respective roles in the administration of justice, to work as one entity to meet our collective objective to serve the public. We are mindful of the impact of our actions on the people around us both in proximity and in the larger department and strive to ensure that we maintain the best interests of the department in our approach to our work.

Identify and Meet our Clients' Needs: DOJ personnel have a wide variety of responsibilities and an equally diverse clientele, internal and external to government, and we are committed to ensuring that they know we work for them and that we treat them with empathy, inclusion, integrity, respect and professionalism.

Initiative and Innovation: Management will encourage DOJ staff at all levels to think innovatively and to take initiative that will improve the work we do and services that we provide to allow for positive change and creativity in the workplace. Management will encourage DOJ personnel to reconsider our approach to the services we provide and adapt to the changing environment.

Communications: We are committed to improving the way we communicate internally with one another and externally to the public in order to better perform as a DOJ Team, share information and ideas with each other, dispel negative myths about the department and to ensure that the general public has an appreciation for the excellent work we do.
