Judges

Judges must make decisions based on the law and the facts of the case before them. Their decisions must not be influenced by politics, personal or religious beliefs, or outside relationships.

Judicial Appointments

In Canada all judges are appointed, not elected. They must be experienced lawyers before being considered for appointment and will also receive special training after their appointment.

Role of Judges

Judges ensure that both sides get a fair opportunity to present their case and act as an independent and impartial decision-maker.

Complaints about Judges

There are special judicial councils set up to investigate and deal with complaints about judges.

PLEA can provide you with information to help you understand many legal matters you, a family member or friend may be facing.
