The ongoing leadership of the Chief Justice of Canada Beverley McLachlin to raise issues relating to improving access to justice for all Canadians has done much to focus the attention and the energies of many who work within the justice system. The Action Committee on Access to Justice in Civil and Family Matters has emerged as a voice for system wide improvements. The Action Committee is focused on fostering engagement, pursuing a strategic approach to reforms and coordinating the efforts of all participants concerned with civil justice. To learn more about this project please see Chief Justice McLachlin's speech from the 2012 Canadian Bar Association Council Meeting.
The Canadian Forum on Civil Justice is pleased to play a support role in the execution of research and dissemination activities for the Action Committee on Access to Justice in Civil and Family Matters.
