Transforming the criminal justice system

We want to make changes to Canada’s criminal justice system to promote a safe, peaceful and prosperous society. As part of this process, we are thinking differently about how it relates to other social support systems in our society.

We want to know how you think we could improve the criminal justice system. We have launched public consultations and are seeking the views of all Canadians. Adding your voice will help ensure a just, compassionate and fair criminal justice system for all of us.
