Canadian Institute for the Administration of Justice

The administration of justice affects every member of Canadian society. The operation of our courts and the efficiency of the entire system of criminal and civil justice has an important impact on individuals, families, and economic well-being.

Fostering improvements in the administration of justice throughout Canada, broadening public knowledge and understanding of our system of justice, and preserving the integrity of a strong and independent judiciary are the primary objectives of the Canadian Institute for the Administration of Justice.

CIAJ, founded in 1974, is a national non-profit corporation with no government affiliation. In order to improve the quality of justice for all Canadians, the Institute continuously examines Canada's justice system, advancing reforms and exploring new directions in administrative justice.

CIAJ's work embraces all aspects of the administration of justice: universal access to justice; quality of legal services; court management and the conduct of trials; the judiciary at all levels; the interface between the law and social institutions; and the role of media
and the public.

CIAJ members come from all regions of Canada, and include judges, members of administrative boards and tribunals, the legal profession, educators, legal drafters, journalists, court personnel, staff of social agencies, and the public. We serve our members in both official languages.

Canadian Center for Management Development
(Now The Canada School of Public Service)

The Learning Centre is the only learning centre in Canada that focuses exclusively on the development and training of Canada's senior federal public servants. It also serves federal public servants who have demonstrated potential to move into these ranks. The Learning Centre's goal is to develop federal executives who have the leadership competencies, diversity of experience and global perspective to assume ever-greater levels of responsibility.

Among The Learning Centre's permanent staff are those who guide the learning architecture and design needed to meet the learning objectives and content identified by the most senior levels of the Public Service.

The Centre supplements its own expertise with that available from other sources. It hires specialists in leadership skill development, and contracts out courses that are readily available elsewhere.

The Learning Centre conducts research on management topics of interest to executives in the public service.

[The Canadian Centre for Management Development (CCMD), Training and Development Canada (TDC) and Language Training Canada (LTC) have been brought together as one organization: The Canada School of Public Service. The School, which opened on April 1, 2004, creates a more unified approach to learning and development in the Public Service of Canada.]
