covid 19: Courts are not operating as usual. Do not go to court unless you have been told to attend. You can continue to access the justice system for urgent matters, including online filing of civil claims, small claims or family law matters and filing by email at the Superior Court of Justice or the Ontario Court of Justice.

What we do

  • Create a fair and accessible justice system for all Ontarians.
  • Coordinate and administer court services throughout Ontario.
  • Work to modernize the justice system and provide services that are more accessible, responsive and easy to use.
  • Build safe and prosperous communities across the province by increasing access to justice and responding to the evolving needs of Ontario.
  • Provide legal advice to, and conduct litigation on behalf of, all government ministries and many agencies, boards and tribunals.
