I am pleased to welcome you to the Canadian Judicial Council's 2010-11 Annual Report website. This micro-site is intended to present the year in review in a creative and informative way, while reducing our reliance on paper and capitalizing on the effective use of technology. By exploring this site you will learn about Council's efforts to ensure that Canadians continue to benefit from a strong, effective and efficient judiciary. Notable among Council's accomplishments in 2010-11 was the work undertaken to strengthen and enhance some of the key procedures by which complaints against federally appointed judges are reviewed. Council has also been an active participant in the work of the Action Committee on Access to Justice in Civil and Family Matters. This, together with our ongoing work in the areas of judicial independence, judicial education and public information, is aimed at ensuring that we fully earn the confidence of the Canadian public. I hope you find the information on this site useful, and that it will allow you to become better acquainted with the work of Council.

The Right Honourable Beverley McLachlin Chairperson
