Justices of the Peace receive extensive training from the Ontario Court of Justice. It includes intensive sessions related to specific legal matters such as bail, search and seizure, provincial offences trials and how to interpret legal principles.

Mentoring and observing court proceedings with an experienced colleague helps Justices of the Peace apply their real-world, community experience to the court room.

Justices of the Peace build and maintain professional skills, and social and cultural awareness, through ongoing continuous education. Annual, required programs ensure all Justices of the Peace receive standardized levels of continuing education each year.
