The Department of Justice did not manage the delivery of court services for the Provincial Court efficiently. We found there were opportunities for improvement.

We wanted to determine whether the Department of Justice manages the delivery of court services for the Provincial Court of Manitoba efficiently.

We found some key areas where the supports provided by the Department could be improved and could be more efficient.

This audit report notes there were significant technology deficiencies and an overwhelming reliance on paper-based systems. There were also considerable staff shortages in the positions that support the Provincial Court.

We also found the risks and impacts identified throughout the audit were more strongly felt in Northern Manitoba.

The report includes 7 recommendations.
