Ontario Delivering Digital Access to Courts

TORONTO — The Ontario government is delivering a new digital justice solution that will transform how people handle their legal matters at the Superior and Ontario Courts of Justice. The Courts Digital Transformation initiative will be the most significant single step forward in the digital evolution of justice in Canada, replacing outdated paper-based procedures with an online platform to manage cases, documents and schedules. “Our government’s new digital solution is a game-changer that will provide Ontarians with on-demand access to their legal matters,” said Attorney General Doug Downey. “Building on numerous recent breakthroughs, this central piece of the Justice Accelerated Strategy will provide the tools needed to better meet expectations for how justice can be done in 2021 and beyond.” The Courts Digital Transformation solution will allow court users to:

  • digitally access court information 24 hours a day from anywhere

  • submit and view documents online

  • file even more court documents in more types of matters

  • have easier, faster access to court records
