Training & Education


The impact of administrative justice agencies on the lives of individual Canadians, is significant. It is probable that  people will connect more with administrative justice agencies, than with the judicial court system. There has been significant change in agencies, boards and commissions and an increasing deference by the courts to tribunals to make decisions affecting day-to-day lives.

It is important that members and staff of administrative justiceorganizations receive adequate training and skills d evelopment. Increasing andmaintaining competence and expertise through training and continuing education is essential to maintain and improve the administrative justice system. Proper training helps members and staff learn advanced techniques to complete everyday tasks more efficiently. Training reduces turnover, improves job satisfaction, rewards employees and reduces the need for supervision. Training and education help keep people on the leading edge of current practices, policies, procedures and standards.
