Access to Justice

The “Access to Justice” pillar within ACCEC is specifically designed to confront the issue of over-representation of African-Canadians in the legal systems of Alberta. This initiative seamlessly aligns with ACCEC’s overarching mission to empower and advance the rights and opportunities of individuals of African descent throughout Canada. Through the delivery of high-quality services, comprehensive research endeavors, and a critical examination of policies and legislative frameworks, ACCEC addresses the multifaceted challenges that impact the lives of people of African descent in Alberta and beyond. By strategically focusing on access to justice, we aim to contribute meaningfully to the creation of a more equitable legal landscape, ensuring fair representation and opportunities for African-Canadians within the legal systems of Alberta and across the broader Canadian context.
