JusticeNet is a not-for-profit service promoting increased access to justice for low- and moderate-income Canadians. Our service is intended to complement public legal aid and pro bono programs by expanding the number of clients receiving support and by expanding the types of legal problems addressed. The service is currently limited to the Province of Ontario.
JusticeNet is unique in its ability to benefit all participants in our justice system:
- Low- and moderate-income Canadians gain greater opportunities for legal expertise and alternative dispute resolution.
- Individual professionals gain the chance to engage in public service and demonstrate their commitment to the cause of access to justice.
- Pressure on legal aid is eased due to reduced applications and the possibility to refer unqualified clients to this alternate program.
- Courts and judges obtain relief from the frustrating and time-consuming burden of self-represented litigants.
