Access to Justice
At their recent April 2017 meeting, the Council passed for following unanimous motion:
" THAT the Canadian Judicial Council supports the aspirational goal of the public having 100% access to the knowledge, resources, skills and services needed to effectively deal with their civil, family and criminal legal problems. As part of its commitment to promote meaningful access to justice for all, the Council urges all federally appointed judges in Canada to demonstrate leadership and work with all Canadian citizens and justice system stakeholders to achieve that goal."
