Available online training

Now available from Justice Canada

The Centre of Expertise for Learning and Professional Development (LPD) and Centre for Legal Education Services (CLES) both provide training that can be accessed online. To reduce the strain on our network, we encourage employees to take online training outside of peak times (9:00 am to 5:00 pm ET). You may register by completing a Training Request through the Self-Service module in PeopleSoft.

Once registration via PeopleSoft Self-Service is complete, you will receive a link to the recorded Webcast.

When you complete the training, please send CLES an email to confirm you have viewed the Webcast and to confirm your law society membership to ensure your PeopleSoft status is updated to reflect completion.

Other CLES courses are also available. For more, consult the latest monthly training e-pub on the Digital Workspace, or visit the Justice Training Calendar.

Now available from the Canada School of Public Service

Online courses from the Canada School of Public Service (CSPS), including self-paced mandatory training and language maintenance tools, are now available through GCcampus. Employees will need to make a Training Request through PeopleSoft Self-Service, and register directly with CSPS through GCcampus. GCcampus is accessible through public networks and you do not need to use the Justice network to register and participate in the courses.

Note: To access online courses provided by CSPS and other external training providers, using a Justice laptop but outside of Government of Canada networks, follow these instructions: Access elearning.

Course cancellations

Classroom courses and in-person events offered by the Centre of Expertise for Learning and Professional Development (LPD) and the Centre for Legal Education Services (CLES) have been suspended until May 31, 2020. Classroom courses and in-person events provided by the Canada School of Public Service (CSPS) have also been suspended until further notice.

How to cancel training


When internal courses are cancelled by a Justice Training Administrator, your Training Summary is automatically updated to reflect the cancellation. There are no cancellation fees.

If you registered for training offered by the CSPS or external providers, you need to delete the approved training request in your Training Summary in PeopleSoft, found under " Self-Service: Learning and Development". For step-by-step instructions, see the Employee Quick Reference Guide.

Note: Deleting the approved request for a course in Peoplesoft does not remove your registration with CSPS or an external provider. You must notify the provider, and cancellation fees may apply.


During the COVID-19 situation, managers are encouraged to consult the Justice Training Calendar and GCcampus for updates on when course offerings may resume. Before cancelling or approving external training, managers should obtain information about the external provider’s cancellation policy and use their discretion in deciding whether to approve or cancel.

Please contact the Centre of Expertise for Learning and Professional Development (LPD) or the Centre for Legal Education Services (CLES) with any questions.

Mandatory training for managers and supervisors on easing workplace restrictions

For up-to-date information about this training, please consult the Easing Workplace Restrictions course page on the Digital Workspace.

Many jurisdictions across Canada are taking steps towards re-opening the economy and some workplaces. The Department is preparing in advance to allow a staged, moderate and controlled increase in the number of employees able to work on site. These plans are based on the assumption that we will be working under limitations for the next several months and most employees will continue to work remotely as a result.

All managers and supervisors are required to take the Easing Workplace Restrictions virtual training course related to these procedures. The training consists of 4 modules delivered via self-paced eLearning as well as live WebEx presentations and Q & A sessions, with each module presented by internal subject matter experts.

Details for this training have been distributed to managers and supervisors by email. If you have not received an email or if you have any questions concerning this training, please contact the Centre of Expertise for Learning and Professional Development at
