The new courthouse will bring together many of Toronto's Ontario Court of Justice criminal courts operating across the city. Amalgamating several courts into one state-of-the-art facility will reduce costs, make operations more efficient and effective, provide for equal access to services, and will ensure the province's real estate portfolio is sustainable, accessible and efficient.
The new Toronto courthouse will include:
- Barrier-free environment, to allow visitors and occupants to travel throughout the building with ease.
- Video conferencing to allow witnesses to appear from remote locations and in-custody individuals to appear from detention facilities.
- Closed-circuit television to enable children and other vulnerable witnesses to appear before the court from a private room.
- Courtroom video/audio systems to allow counsel to display video evidence recorded in various formats and for the simultaneous viewing of evidence.
