Ontario is proposing to move jury duty questionnaires online.
That’s one part of a large red tape reduction bill the government introduced this week, which also includes increasing the amount of time retired judges can serve.
Attorney General Doug Downey said allowing prospective jurors to complete their questionnaire online is another step toward a “digital first” — though not “digital only” — world in the courts.
“It’s the next evolution in terms of moving us to a more modern way of doing jury management and selection,” he said Thursday.
Downey announced last year that the province was planning to introduce a digital court system that will allow people to access court information from anywhere, and file documents and pay fees online.
