Check Out the Justice Canada Research and Data Publications

The Research and Statistics Division at Justice Canada publishes a range of information products that can interest the legal researcher:

"High quality research and data are foundational to making evidence-based decisions on justice-related issues. At Justice Canada, the Research and Statistics Division (RSD) plays an important role in supporting the development of effective policies, programs, and legislation by conducting social science research and summarizing findings in reports and other informational products."

"Some of the RSD’s studies are conducted by in-house researchers, others are conducted by external subject-matter specialists, such as academics, community-based researchers or legal experts who are contracted by the RSD. This allows the Department to benefit from different research perspectives and approaches and to hear the voices of many different communities."

There are research reports, fact sheets and infographics, analyses relating to the performance of the criminal justice system, studies on the various kinds of legal problems faced by different groups of Canadians, annual surveys of Canadians’ perceptions and knowledge of justice-related issues, reports on legal aid, and victims-related research articles.

The most recent publication (December 2022): Overrepresentation of Black people in the Canadian criminal justice system.
