The Government of British Columbia is appointing a new Provincial Court judge.

Grace Oh will be appointed a judge effective Jan. 3, 2023.  

Oh completed a bachelor of law degree at the University of British Columbia and was called to the B.C. bar in September 1994. Most recently, she was a prosecutor with the BC Prosecution Service, a position she held for 25 years. Oh has a diverse range of experience conducting remand lists, Provincial and Supreme court trials and charge assessment. She has also been involved in administration and policy development.

Quick facts:

    • Interested lawyers apply, and the Judicial Council of B.C. reviews the candidates.
    • The council is a statutory body made up of the chief judge, an associate chief judge, other judges, lawyers and members from outside the legal profession.
    • The council recommends potential judges to the attorney general, with the final appointment made through a cabinet order-in-council.
