The Court Case Management Program (CCM) is a judicially-led initiative designed to more effectively manage matters in Edmonton and Calgary adult Provincial Criminal Court. This is intended to increase public confidence in the justice system and improve access to justice.
CCM incorporates innovative approaches to scheduling matters, including the introduction of new technology such as Remote Courtroom Scheduling (booking matters online by computer or mobile device). In a separate yet related initiative, the Criminal Justice Division adopted "Crown file ownership" whereas an assigned prosecutor follows a file from beginning to end, which coincides with the overall objectives of CCM.
