Further steps are being taken to modernize Manitoba’s court system and improve efficiency.

The province is implementing an Integrated Case Management System (ICMS), which will support all three levels of Manitoba courts and its various branches. There are presently more than 20 different systems throughout Manitoba courts that aren’t integrated — many of which still require paper-based and manual updating.

“The new Integrated Case Management System will revolutionize the way information is handled right across our court system,” said Justice Minister Cliff Cullen.

“This project is an important initiative to replace antiquated, outdated systems. Once the new system is implemented, it will help ensure more Manitobans all across our province have access to justice information.”

Once fully implemented, the system will allow for provincewide access to court information, integrated modules to share information and improve public access to online systems.
