Researchers, practitioners, policy analysts, policy markers, government officers and other stakeholders will gather in Montréal to explore the future of access to justice in Canada.
There is a critical stage in access to justice in Canada. Over any three-year period, nearly half of all Canadians will experience at least one legal problem. Yet, the justice system is increasingly inaccessible to the majority of Canadians. This inaccessibility has led to a national call for increased innovation in the civil and family justice system. Yet, we are only beginning to understand the opportunities and challenges that manifest when we begin to view the problem of access to justice through an innovation lens. In an effort to further explore these challenges and opportunities this conference will focus on questions and themes of related to innovation and access to justice.
