Prepared by Alison MacPhail for Working Group on Access to Legal Services of theĀ Action Committee on Access to JusticeĀ In Civil and Family Matters.

The Access to Legal Services Working Group consists of senior representatives of the bar and both levels of government, as well as a member representing the public at large, with the goal of encouraging innovation and action in the delivery of legal services that will improve access to justice for the benefit of the Canadian public. This report is intended as a first step to encourage further discussion, engagement and action, but does not necessarily represent a consensus among working group members, nor reflect a formal position of the various organizations represented.
