ABOUT THE ACCESS TO JUSTICE IN ENGLISH PROJECT
The QCGN considers access to justice in English in Quebec as essential to strengthening community vitality and representation. The Access to Justice in English in Quebec (AJEQ) project is a community-based initiative developed by the QCGN with support from Justice Canada. The project seeks to:
- Better understand access to justice in English issues affecting the Official Language Minority Community (OLMC) in Quebec.
- Develop effective ways to address identified access to justice in English issues.
- Engage the justice system in improving access to justice in English.
Reporting to the Access to Justice Project Director, the Legal and Social Policy Researcher (hereinafter Researcher) is required to support the work of the Access to Justice in English Initiative by conducting research on language rights and policies across Quebec and developing strategies to better organize justice services for the Official Language Minority Community.
