Consultation with Canadians report - Criminal Justice System

6. Conclusion

The Government of Canada completed a public consultation on transforming the criminal justice system as part of its mandate to review the criminal justice system.

The extent of key findings from this public consultation speak to the broad scope of the criminal justice system review. A summary of key findings include the following:

Some of the issues raised involve other social systems, and their solutions will require long-term collaborative approaches.

Among other things, solutions will involve identifying where and how vulnerable populations intersect with the criminal justice system, ensuring resources are allocated efficiently and effectively, and considering evidence and sound information. Our criminal justice system must be capable of responding to a rapidly changing world, including both societal and technological changes.

As the criminal justice system review continues, the Government will consider findings from the public consultation.
