One of the keys to understanding what needs to be done in the area of access to justice in civil and family matters is to first understand what is already being done. That is the goal of this first ever national survey (“Survey’) on the Action Committee on Access to Justice in Civil and Family Matters’ (“Action Committee”) nine Justice Development Goals. This Survey, in support of this first (and hopefully regular) Status Report (“Report”), is based on the Action Committee’s A Roadmap for Change report that offers six guiding principles for change and a ninepoint Access to Justice Roadmap.”1 The purpose of this Survey and Report is to help inform a national conversation on the state of access to justice in Canada with a view to recognizing current initiatives and identifying areas for future work. The Survey was conducted by the Canadian Forum on Civil Justice (CFCJ). This follow up Report was produced by the Canadian Forum on Civil Justice, under the leadership of Lisa Moore, Nicole Aylwin and Trevor Farrow.
