Statistics Canada Civil Court Survey 2018/2019

Statistics Canada recently published a Civil Court Survey, 2018/2019 that looks at non-criminal disputes in Canadian courts:
"The total number of cases handled by the civil courts in Canada rose 1.1% in 2018/2019—from 914,194 cases to 924,316 cases—mainly because of heavier caseloads in Ontario, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut."

"... Distinct from criminal cases, civil cases are typically private disputes between people or organizations."

"The civil court caseload is divided into two categories: family cases—which generally deal with divorce and separation, parenting arrangements, support, child protection and various other non-criminal family matters—and non-family cases, such as contract disputes, lawsuits for damages, employment actions, probate proceedings and other claims involving money."
