A Service Provider’s Companion to Disability and The
Like everyone else, Canadians with disabilities can run into difficulty
dealing with the justice system. In this respect, this “Service
Provider's Companion” will help volunteers and professional staff
provide more effective support to individuals with disabilities. It offers
an introduction to the Canadian record on disability as well as insight to
the justice “system”. Greater detail can be found in the publication
entitled “Understanding Justice — A Consumer's Guide to the System for
Canadians with Disabilities” and this “Companion” serves as a guide
to that document. Both are also available in electronic format.
The materials related to the Equality in Practice project are intended
to provide information, but not to represent legal advice regarding the
justice system in Canada. Anyone considering legal or similar proceedings
should consult a law professional for appropriate direction.
