York University, Institute for Social Research will undertake a longitudinal trend survey on public perceptions and issues in the civil justice system in Ontario. This research project expects to establish a data base of longitudinal trend survey research findings and provide insight into (1) what is working in the civil justice system and what can be improved, (2) which research issues and themes warrant further in-depth research; and (3) what are the similarities and differences within the data base between survey respondents with specific experiences with the justice system and those who do not have those experiences. The research will help address the gap in existing research on meaningful access to justice in Ontario that is person-centred or public-oriented. The survey will be developed collaboratively with community organizations such as Community Legal Education Ontario and Pro Bono Ontario.
