|April 2005||Province-wide electronic data collection available|
|2007/2008||All court sites province wide converted to FRANK, except Toronto|
|2008/2009||Anticipated finalization of province-wide phased implementation of FRANK|
Provincial case tracking system (FRANK) was developed to address management information and operational needs of Ontario's courts and to provide extensive data about case processing. Province-wide phased implementation was initiated in 2004 and is almost complete, with only one site, Toronto, remaining unconverted. It is anticipated that this site will be converted by 2009, completing the province-wide implementation and standardizing the use of a single court application to track all civil, family, Small Claims, Divisional Court and Superior Court of Justice Criminal Court cases.
To more effectively manage court cases, collect data and facilitate tracking activity.
FRANK allows statistical data about court activity to be extracted for the purpose of reporting. This has replaced the manual collection of data previously in place. Electronic case tracking also permits continuous monitoring of case volumes, case flow and dispositions.
