Legal Aid in Canada, 2016-2017 The Legal Aid Survey was a Canada Centre for Justice Statistics (CCJS)/Statistics Canada annual survey on revenues. Expenditures, personnel, and caseload statistics associated with the administration and delivery of legal aid in Canada. The Legal Aid Survey was first conducted in1983-84, and the data was last published in 2016 (for the fiscal year 2014-16). After the discontinuation of the Legal Aid Survey in 2016, the Department of Justice (JUS) began data collection and reporting in-house. This is the first legal aid annual report since the cancellation of the Legal Aid Survey. Data for 2015-16 is not available due to the change in approach to data collecting and reporting. In 2016-17, JUS, through its Legal Aid Program contributed more than $138 million to the provinces and territories for the delivery of criminal legal aid, civil legal aid, and I&R (immigration and refugee) legal aid (where applicable). This amounts to 16% of total legal aid revenues. 2020-07-16 Department of Justice Canada open_Government@justice.gc.ca Government and PoliticsInformation and CommunicationsLawPersonsSociety and CultureDepartment of JusticeJustice SystemApplied ResearchGovernment PublicationsLegal aid Table 1 – Total legal aid plan revenues, by type of revenue, annual, 2016-17 CSV http://www.justice.gc.ca/eng\trans\open-ouvert\rsd-drs\la201617-aj201617\Legal_Aid_2016-17_Table_1.csv Table 1 – Total legal aid plan revenues, by type of revenue, annual, 2016-17 CSV http://www.justice.gc.ca/fra\trans\ouvert-open\drs-rsd\aj201617-la201617\Aide_juridique_2016-17_Tableau_1.csv Table 2 -
