New Website for Canadian Judicial Council
There are explanations on how the Canadian judiciary works, publications on judicial ethics, as well as summaries of how complaints against federally appointed judges have been handled in the past.
The Council is a federal body created under the Judges Act with the mandate to promote efficiency, uniformity, and accountability in the superior courts of Canada. The Council is also mandated to review any complaint or allegation against a superior court judge.
It is chaired by the Chief Justice of Canada, the Right Honourable Beverley McLachlin. There are 38 other Council members, who are the chief justices and associate chief justices of Canada’s superior courts, the senior judges of the territorial courts, and the Chief Justice of the Court Martial Appeal Court of Canada.
