Canadian Centre for Justice and Community Safety Statistics

Since 1981, the Federal, Provincial and Territorial Deputy Ministers Responsible for Justice and Public Safety in Canada have been working together, along with the Chief Statistician of Canada, in an enterprise known as the National Justice Statistics Initiative (NJSI). The mandate of the NJSI is to provide information to the justice community and the public on the nature and extent of crime and victimization and the administration of criminal and civil justice in Canada. As the operational arm of the NJSI, the Canadian Centre for Justice and Community Safety Statistics (CCJCSS), a division of Statistics Canada, is responsible for the development, collection, integration and analysis of data that reflect trends in Canada and on the development of national- and jurisdictional-level indicators.
