The Department of Justice is committed to encouraging the participation of all Canadians and justice-sector stakeholders in the development of law, policy and programs, as well as in identifying emerging trends in law and policy. To this end, the Department uses many different types of public participation activities, ensuring that a broad cross-section of views are taken into consideration when developing law and policy. In the past, the results of public participation activities have influenced the development of policy on youth justice, crime prevention and the rights of victims of crime, as well as law reform and policy.
The Government of Canada is preparing legislation to create a federal Victims Bill of Rights. Have your say about what you would like to see in the legislation.
