The project supports a two day meeting, to be held in Ottawa in the fall of 2009. The meeting will bring together two sets of organizations that received core funding from the Department: the seven associations de juristes d’expression française as well as their Federation and the ten designated public legal education and information providers. The purpose of the meeting is to allow the two groups to become more familiar with each others mandates and specific projects, in order to improve partnerships and encourage cooperation. It is expected that the meeting will result in shared projects that contribute to improving access to justice.
The project is co-funded between the Justice Partnership and Innovation Program ($27,300) and the Access to Justice in Both Official Languages Support Fund ($27,300).
