Take the Index Challenge!

Development of An Access to Justice Index for Federal Administrative Bodies

The INDEX CHALLENGE is a pilot project of the Department of Justice [DOJ]. The project aims to identify practices that increase access to justice in administrative bodies.

Through a series of questions in survey-form, tribunals can use the Index as a self-assessment tool to support service standards. If you take the Challenge, the DOJ will send you results within 5-10 business days.

The information provided is kept confidential.

In the pilot project stage, the DOJ is looking for ten administrative bodies willing to take the Challenge and provide feedback about the survey, including suggestions for improvement.

We encourage you to take the Index Challenge!
