Equal Justice Canada - Who we are

Equal Justice Canada is an independent Federal corporation. We partner with, participate in and support the mandate and initiatives of Equal Justice America.

Equal Justice Canada is focused on prevention and education; in that we work tirelessly each day to educate children, youth and the larger community about the legal justice system so they are encouraged to stay in school, become dedictaed and involved in the community or a career and blossom into contributing members of society.

Our secondary manadate is to work with governments, organizations, service providers and professionals to try to create a more equitable justice system with more focus on meeting the needs of those with mental illnesses who often end up in the criminal justice system due to lack of family support and homelessness.

Equal Justice Canada will also be working with government agencies and raising public awareness about existing injustices in our court systems and access to justice issues in our current court system.

Our organization will also be offering workshops geared at educating low income and vulnerable groups on existing legislation which applies to their groups, such as the Child and Family Services Act, the Criminal Code, the Human Rights Legislation and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Our organization provides and facilitates referrals of parents, families, children and youth as well as individuals who have been denied fair and just treatment in the legal system to legally qualified and trained professionals.

We provide an intake and referral service to individuals, who are often below the poverty line and have been denied effective representation, and others whose trials are marked by systemic discrimination, including class, gender, racial, socio economic class, age and prosecutorial misconduct. 

Equal Justice works with communities that have been marginalized by poverty, lack of opportunity and discouraged by unequal treatment as an existing part of our Canadian social system as it exists today.

Equal Justice Canada also prepares reports, newsletters, and manuals to assist advocates and policymakers in the critically important work of reforming the administration of child welfare law, family law, human rights law and criminal justice.
