Everyday Legal Problems and the Cost of Justice in Canada Fact Sheets
Monday, October 3, 2016

The CFCJ's Everyday Legal Problems and the Cost of Justice in Canada: Overview Report discusses the frequency of seventeen different civil and family justice problems experienced by Canadians, as well as the costs to Canadians and to the State of having an everyday legal problem.

We are thrilled to announce the publication of several Everyday Legal Problems and the Cost of Justice in Canada fact sheets, aimed at providing further detail on the incidences of the seventeen problem categories discussed in the Overview Report. The data in these fact sheets was gathered from our Everyday Legal Problems and the Cost of Justice in Canada Survey. The fact sheets offer information on the following problem types: Consumer, Debt, Employment, Neighbour, Discrimination, Family (Relationship Breakdown), Wills and Incapacity, Medical Treatment, Housing, Personal Injury, Treatment by Police (and Criminal Charges), Family (Other), Disability Assistance, Threat of Legal Action, Social Assistance and Immigration.
