The Eighth Annual Saskatchewan Access to Justice Week is October 23-27, 2023.
This year’s event, the 8th Annual SK A2J Week, emphasizes inclusivity and data-informed change and aims to engage new and diverse voices and to highlight initiatives working to improve justice for Saskatchewan residents.
We invite the public, law students, and members of the justice community to get involved in the week’s many free events and join the conversation.
Some events may qualify for CPD credits for lawyers.
We want to hear from you! Share your access to justice ideas, work, announcements, photos, and reports on social media using the hashtag #SKA2J2023
What is Access to Justice Week?
Saskatchewan Access to Justice (SK A2J) Week is an annual event that engages communities across the province in a conversation about improving access to justice. Many justice stakeholders and organizations throughout Saskatchewan are proud contributors to the week.
The establishment of the Saskatchewan Access to Justice Week is a spinoff of the “Putting the Public First” topic that was addressed by participants at the 2016 meeting of the Dean’s Forum on Access to Justice and Dispute Resolution (the Dean’s Forum) – participants at that meeting identified that a provincial strategy must use multiple vehicles and approaches for engagement of different communities facing access to justice barriers.
The Saskatchewan Access to Justice Week is one vehicle and approach to engage different communities in the access to justice conversation.
The week will provide opportunities to:
- Engage new and diverse voices in the access to justice conversation; and
- Highlight initiatives that aim to improve access to justice for Saskatchewan residents.
