This survey explores legal needs and gaps in Saskatchewan and includes topics such as areas of law that are not adequately offered, social groups whose legal needs are not being adequately met, and strategies for increasing access to justice in the future.
The assessment will address a deficit in justice data in Saskatchewan. It will contribute to coordinated efforts across the country to undertake impactful data collection, highlighting met and unmet legal needs. This is significant because data deficit impedes the advancement and measurement of solutions to address the access to justice (A2J) crisis. The relevant recent national survey had a minimal representation from Saskatchewan – 3.1 % (Canadian Forum on Civil Justice, 2018). The research is building off other legal needs surveys, nationally and internationally, and it is guided by the OECD guidelines (released in 2018) on legal needs surveys.
