In pursuit of equitable access to justice
Do Canadians still have faith in the system?
How well does the justice system serve you? We all have a different answer to that question—that’s the problem. It’s time to build a more efficient system, but an equitable one, too.
In pursuit of equitable access to justice is the newest blog post in our upcoming series on the future of security and justice in Canada. In it, we discuss how lack of progress can erode faith in Canada’s justice system.
The criminal and civil justice system covers everything from contract disagreements to homicides, fraud to family law, and small claims to property crimes. Whatever the legal issue and a person’s role in it, Canadians want the same thing: a system that’s efficient, effective, available, and affordable.
But what does progress look like? Our new blog post details the five things Canada must take to create a justice system that’s simpler, cheaper, faster, and more equitable:
- Take—and sustain—a human-centred approach
- Develop a holistic view of equity
- Involve the private sector
- Never lose sight of the goal
- Spark progress by overhauling the system
