Mauricie

The Mauricie Community Justice Center's mission is to enable access to justice by fostering the participation of citizens through legal information, support and referral services provided in addition to existing resources.

Our center

The Mauricie Community Justice Center (Mau-CJC) has been created in order to provide an accessible gateway on the judicial system. By providing a unique and personalized service, the Center’s staff strives to ensure that individuals feel supported in their legal issues.

It is also a hub of information on the various dispute prevention and resolution processes (ex. mediation), and it reaches out to citizens by creating innovative tools so they can discover these alternatives and better understand them.
Be assured that you will receive professional, courteous and confidential services based on active feedback and that you will be better equipped to make the choices best suited to your needs.

  • welcome you to its facilities, answer your questions and target your needs;
