Courts Personnel and Expenditures Survey


I have a student looking for more recent information from the 2000-2001 court personnel and expenditures survey. Specifically, she is looking for:

If there is a more recent source for this information, please let me know.


The StatCan survey that collected the 2000/2001 data you located no longer appears to be active (; the last reference period for this survey was 2002/2003 (see the following Daily release for data for these years:

I have asked our justice contacts if they can recommend a more recent source for similar data and will share their recommendations with you as soon as I receive their response.

Additional Information

The author division confirmed that the last time data was collected and published for the Courts Resources, Expenditures and Personnel Survey was 2002/2003. They indicated that in the future justice expenditures data will come from the data collected by the the division that disseminates our public sector statistics. The publication of justice expenditures data from this source is however still several years away.

You may wish to see if other organisations (Justice Canada or the jurisdictions/organisations that generate some of these data) publish any of the figures the student needs.
