Episode 6: Millennial Influence

September 11, 2018 | By |

At 37% millennials are currently the largest generation in the workforce. They make over a quarter of the population in Canada and the most educated among them are women – they make up the majority in professions. In 2019, millennials will make up the largest block of voters. This generation is shaping our expectations around technology and convenience. In this episode we look at how they are influencing the justice sector.

Last year we worked with Abacus Data to publish a report that examined how Ontario millennials looked at access to justice technology. Our results found that Millennials show keen interest in a range of access to justice initiatives. The most appealing was an online legal database that allows user to search for information about common legal problems, learn from other people’s experiences, or find a legal professional in their area. Nine in ten (91%) respondents felt this initiative was a good or very good idea.

But what does this mean for the justice sector more broadly – how is it responding? We spoke with Ontario’s former Attorney General Yasir Naqvi for his thoughts.
