Court Services Program - VOTE 305

This program 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 provides judicial, courtroom and court operation support, enforcement services, mediation programs and oversight of 52 municipal partners. Court construction, which is delivered by Corporate Services Division (Facilities Management and Alternative Financing Project branches), provides funding for new courthouses and large-scale renovations of existing court facilities to support a justice system that is modern, secure and accessible.
