The Canadian Forum on Civil Justice has been asked to develop a discussion draft concerning issues of public confidence in the civil justice system. We are providing an overview based primarily on a report we have already published: Public Perceptions of the Role of the Canadian Judiciary, which is available on line at http://www.cfcjfcjc.org/publications-cjsp.htm . This should not be considered a full response to all of the points and questions associated with “ Work Plan Development, Recommendation #2” of the Justice Policy Advisory Committee Public Confidence Subcommittee. A full response would require a focused research project, and perhaps should be considered as a further recommendation from this subcommittee.
