Much has been said about Canada’s access to justice crisis. The statistics can be overwhelming. It is estimated that every Canadian will confront a justiciable problem in their lifetime, and half will experience one in any given three-year period. Evidence shows that many people may try to resolve their problems with no or minimal legal representation. This presentation reviews what lawyers can do to further the accommodation of SRLs in our justice system, having regard to principles endorsed by the Supreme Court of Canada in Pintea.
This on-demand program was originally presented as an in-person program on September 9, 2022 as part of our Navigating Matters with Self-Represented Litigants.
