About the Conference


The Association of Canadian Court Administrators invite you to participate in an exciting, professional conference on the future and on challenges for the justice system

This conference will address how international and domestic pressures, as well as opportunities and challenges arising from technology and social conditions, require new vision, creativity and new processes in our changing courts.

Our domestic world is changing. Major changes in society and crimes in society are occurring rapidly in part due to advances in technology and communications.

Sophisticated and threatening international and domestic crimes and cyber-crimes are organized and already here including:

  • terrorism
  • conspiracy
  • electronic fraud
  • drug production
  • smuggling substances and people
  • infiltration, extortion and blackmail
  • identity theft
  • abuse of intellectual property
  • paramilitary armed gangs

Our court systems are changing. Despite severe restrictions in public funding they need sophisticated risk reduction, electronic document transaction, virtual appearances, virtual courthouses without bricks and mortar.

Can laws, institutions and processes from previous centuries stay ahead of changing needs? Explore together visions of our changing world and how our institutions are changing.
