Re-imagining legal aid (Consultation deadline extended)
CBA’s Access to Justice Committee and the Association of Legal Aid Plans of Canada are conducting a consultation on national legal aid benchmarks in Canada.
We are asking the justice community to take a step back and consider what they want Canada’s legal aid system to look like. Who should legal aid serve? What services should it cover? How should it deliver services? These are all questions we seek input on. In other sectors, benchmarking has proven an effective process to encourage discussion and collaboration about core expectations, articulate a common view and motivate people and organizations to reach them.
