Government of New Brunswick

This court is a provincial government initiative resulting from the Government of New Brunswick plan to address violence against women. It is a specialized provincial court presided over by a judge and supported by a dedicated team of professionals. The court combines specialization in domestic violence cases with co-ordinated community-based resources for support and treatment of victims and offenders. 

The court has four goals:

  • to improve the response of the criminal justice system to victim needs and safety planning;
  • to promote offender accountability and early intervention to help stop the cycle of violence;
  • to accelerate prosecution and court processes; and
  • to offer timely access to services for victims and offenders.
