While education and justice are the persuasive thoughts to the social development epoch, the cost of justice” emerges from the locality and moves to the courts for an ultimate determination of “social justice”. This paper argues that the higher the proportions of high-school passed people in a region, the lower the crime rate and the smaller the cost of crime to the society as the burden of judicial administration. The viability of education to the cost of justice corresponding to ‘crime’ is paramount to the relative impact of policy intervention — where education comes to light as a critical social investment pondering the equal opportunity in a diverse and the multilingual nation in Canada. The province-wise cumulative data avowing the magnitude of high-school educated people somewhat determine the positive impact as a result of the diminishing frequency of adult-people court cases. A “social development model” to the “cost of justice” delimited here anticipates two common factors, the existing social policy and the justice system administration. Edging of the judicial administration compels that the current justice system should link the reforms in social development policy to lowering the cost of justice to be conversely nested at least to the five major indulgent. A threshold would require the enforcement or advancement in government policy to the secondary school educational curriculum incorporating the subject ‘ethics and law’ to diminish the crimes in a region — aiming to succeed a yearly aggregate target of the proportion of high-school graduates among the total population in a province or territory.
