Most BC courts have suspended their regular operations. Many matters have been adjourned, but recently courts have begun to increase the types of matters they are hearing. Whether your matter will continue depends on what court you matter is in (e.g. Supreme or Provincial), the type of matter (criminal, civil, or family), and type of hearing (e.g. trial or pre-trial). Check the notices of the relevant court for details about upcoming hearings and adjournments.  

Most recent notice(s) for Provincial: No. 19 (Updated July 2, 2020), May 26, 2020 UpdateInitial Criminal Appearances CRIM 13

Most recent notice(s) for Supreme:  No. 28, No. 32, No. 33, No. 34

Most recent notices(s) for Appeal:  July 7, 2020 Update
