Most courts have returned to their regular operations, but there are enhanced safety measures in place. Be sure to check updated information on the BC Supreme Court.

  • Family, Civil and Insolvency Matters: All non-jury civil and family trials scheduled to begin on or after June 8, 2020 will resume, unless the Court otherwise directs. Contact your registry for more information. All civil jury selections are suspended and jury trials are cancelled up to and including October 7, 2022.
  • Effective June 30, 2020 the Court will resume registrar hearings. Check for more information.
  • Criminal Matters: During the suspension of regular court operations, the Court established a temporary process to manage requests for hearings of essential or urgent criminal matters while registries were not providing in-person services. The Court resumed criminal jury selections and trials on September 8, 2020. See Notice No. 38.
