As of July 2020 traffic court matters have been proceeding. Starting in June parties have been sent a new notice of hearing that will include the date, time and location (including the address) of the hearing. Start times will be staggered so that all participants are not at the hearing location at the same time. Parties who receive a notice of hearing and require interpreter services for their hearing must contact the Violation Ticket Center at 1-877-661-8026 prior to their hearing date. Effective November 24, 2020, all people attending courthouses in BC are required to wear masks while inside a courthouse.
See Notice No. 19 for additional information relating to traffic and bylaw matters.
For additional information, see the BC Provincial Court’s new COVID-19 FAQ page.
