On March 9, 2019, the Manitoba government announced the Criminal Justice System Modernization Strategy (CJSM), following an internal review of Manitoba’s criminal justice system.
The CJSM is a four-point strategy. It emphasizes crime prevention. It targets resources for serious criminal cases. It more effectively uses restorative justice. And it supports the responsible reintegration of offenders. The goal of the CJSM is to transform the way we deal with complex issues related to the administration of justice in our province. It is designed to help create safe communities and ensure timely access to justice for all Manitobans.
