About ALOC

The Association of Law Officers of the Crown (ALOC) represents lawyers and articling students employed by the government of Ontario, with the exception of lawyers in the Criminal Law Division, who are represented by its sister organization, the Ontario Crown Attorney's Association (OCAA). ALOC has approximately 750 members located in legal service branches across government as well as in various agencies, boards and commissions.

In addition to representing the government in civil matters and quasi-criminal prosecutions, and providing advice on policy, regulations and legislation, ALOC members have a unique historical relationship to government which contains critical safeguards for the rule of law in a democratic society.

ALOC is involved in a range of activities of interest to its members including collective bargaining, grievances and educational events. ALOC also responds to member inquiries and works with management on a host of issues such as job competitions, pensions, the merit / pay for performance scheme and the interpretation of the Collective Agreement.

Our Mandate
Negotiating salaries, professional fees, working conditions and related matters on behalf of its members;
Negotiating with the employer to resolve grievances and other disputes arising between ALOC members and the employer; and
Conducting continuing legal education programs for ALOC members including an annual ALOC educational conference.
