SSC is refreshing its Network and Security Strategy to align with current best practices, and to be adaptable to future requirements for its network and security services.These technology trends will require SSC to rethink how it architects, provides, manages and secures its network services, and must be agile enough to integrate any technology that is deemed necessary to government operations. To develop this Network and Security Strategy, new approaches focused on automation, software-defined infrastructure (SDI) and a zero trust concept are required. The Network and Security Strategy defines the approach SSC will need to undertake to enable the government to meet the demands of today, and adapt to the demands of the future by leveraging a progressive adoption and migration overall strategy.

Section 4.2 of the Department of Justice Act requires the Minister of Justice to prepare a Charter Statement for every government bill to help inform public and Parliamentary debate on government bills. One of the Minister of Justice’s most important responsibilities is to examine legislation for inconsistency with the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms [“the Charter”]. By tabling a Charter Statement, the Minister is sharing some of the key considerations that informed the review of a bill for inconsistency with the Charter. A Statement identifies Charter rights and freedoms that may potentially be engaged by a bill and provides a brief explanation of the nature of any engagement, in light of the measures being proposed.

The Victims of Crime Research Digest will be an annual, joint publication featuring short articles dedicated to victims of crime research. Research is an important tool in helping to incorporate victims' voices on many issues in the criminal justice system and to affect change in legislation, policy or practice.

In Canada, the body of research on victim issues is growing, but there remains much data to be collected to further our understanding of criminal justice processes, as well as the expectations, perceptions and needs of victims. We hope that the Digest will help to highlight some of the research that is being undertaken and that it will help share some of the findings.
