Ministry of the Attorney General, 2007 - Civil law - 135 pages
On June 28, 2006, Attorney General Michael Bryant asked the Honourable Coulter Osborne, former Associate Chief Justice of Ontario, to lead the Civil Justice Reform Project (CJRP). Mr. Osborne was asked to propose options to reform the civil justice system to make it more accessible and affordable for Ontarians. Recommendations for action were to focus on proposals which will produce meaningful results in enhancing access to justice for Ontarians and which will be suitable for implementation within a reasonable amount of time. In conducting this review, the CJRP engaged in province-wide consultations, researched relevant civil justice studies and literature, recent reforms in other jurisdictions, and considered available quantitative and qualitative data. The work of the CJRP took into account the following principles and considerations: access, proportionality, one size does not fit all, and the culture of litigation. This document is a summary of Mr. Osborne's findings and recommendations--Publisher's website.
