Judicial Council Report on Reforms

From the Canadian Judicial Council press release:

The Canadian Judicial Council has released a report on reforms undertaken across Canada to make it easier and more affordable for Canadians to seek justice in the courts. The Chief Justice of Canada, the Right Honourable Beverley McLachlin, who also heads the Council, has identified access to justice as one of the most important challenges facing the justice system today. …

This report, which was undertaken by a sub-committee of the Council’s Administration of Justice Committee, is based on records developed at its request for the new Inventory of Reforms created by the Canadian Forum on Civil Justice (http://cfcj-fcjc.org/inventory/). The report identifies 60 reforms in the five noted areas covered [proportionality, experts, point of entry, discovery, caseflow management], ranging from pilot projects to changes that have already become permanent.

The report is available in PDF.
