State of the Criminal Justice System Methodology Report


Canada’s first national performance monitoring framework provides the foundation for understanding the current state of the CJS and provides a clear roadmap for further data development and data collection to inform legislation, policies, programs, and practices. The State of the Criminal Justice System Report and online Dashboard were publicly released on May 30th 2019 and are available on the Justice Canada website.

Note that the Framework is evergreen, with modifications expected over time as performance monitoring capacity and the CJS change, and more data become available. JUS will continue to work with partners to further refine the Framework and fill the data gaps it has identified.
