The strategic vision for the Alberta Court of Justice is to build a modern, independent, accountable Court that provides fair, accessible, efficient, and innovative justice for all Albertans. The 2019–2021 Provincial Court of Alberta Biennial Report covers the activity of the Court for the two-year period from April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2021.
During this time, and due to COVID-19, the Court saw its operations dramatically impacted, and significantly scaled back operations to implement new processes and technology to safely deliver justice to Albertans.
The Report provides information about the values, vision, governance and administration of the Court, its areas of practice, and the wide variety of initiatives and programs the Court has undertaken during the reporting period.
