COURT SERVICES PROGRAM - VOTE 305

The Court Services Division is responsible for the administration and functioning of criminal, civil, family and small claims courts in Ontario. These services are divided into three components: court administration, judicial services and court construction. Court administration and judicial services provide support to the effective and efficient management of the justice system. Court construction provides funding for new courthouses and large-scale renovations of existing court facilities to support a justice system that is modern, secure and accessible.
