TAG is pleased to release the results of Public Perceptions of Access to Justice in Ontario. Conducted by Abacus Data, this poll was conducted online in August 2016 with 1,500 Ontarians ages 18 and over.
- 40 per cent of Ontarians do not believe that they have fair and equal access to the justice system
- Of those who have needed legal help, most of the respondents (46 per cent) sought advice from lawyers and almost one third (32 per cent) turned to friends or family for advice
- Surprisingly, only 26 per cent turned to the internet for information.
