Steering Committee on Justice Efficiencies and Access to the Justice System

I - Context

From the early stages of the creation of the Steering Committee on Justice Efficiencies and Access to the Justice System (the Steering Committee), the assessment of the advisability of reforming jury trials in Canada was identified as a priority issue.

That is why the Steering Committee created a smaller working group with a mandate to identify the difficulties associated with criminal jury trial procedure, examine the issues, and make recommendations to the Steering Committee for making jury trials more efficient. The Deputy Minister of Justice of Québec was appointed chair of the working group.
