Ministers From Across Canada Discuss Justice and Public Safety Priorities

Halifax - Ministers from across Canada responsible for justice and public safety gathered in Halifax over the last two days to work together and discuss justice and public safety priorities for Canadians, announced David Orazietti, MPP.


“Our government is committed to working with our federal, provincial, and territorial partners on a number of important cross-country justice and public safety priorities,” said Orazietti. “Over the past two days, we discussed a number of key issues for Ontario, including crime prevention, border security, legalization of marijuana, and First Nations policing.”


As Ontario’s Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services, Orazietti met with his federal, provincial, and territorial counterparts to discuss key issues including:

  • violence against Indigenous women and girls and the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls
  • the importance of continuing to support professional, dedicated and culturally responsive policing services in Indigenous communities
  • the federal government’s ongoing review of the criminal justice system to make it more effective and efficient
  • the implementation of the Office for Community Outreach and Countering Radicalization to Violence and on the Government of Canada’s national security consultation
  • bail, remand, judicial case management, and the need to modernize fingerprinting legislation
  • challenges related to cybercrime and progress made on justice system innovation
  • exploring ways to improve access to justice for sexual assault complainants and to share best practices and lessons learned.
  • continuing to work together to address issues leading up to the legalization of marijuana for non-medical use


Working closely and collaboratively with our federal, provincial, and territorial partners on key issues is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
