How do I know if my matter will be heard remotely? How can I prepare for a remote proceeding?

18, 09-2020

Because of COVID-19, most Provincial Court proceedings are being handled remotely. A remote proceeding means your hearing or case conference matter may be conducted by: 

  • a phone call from the court 
  • a conference call through Telus 
  • an audioconference or videoconference through Microsoft Teams

If you’re not sure how your matter will proceed, contact your court registry. See also Provincial Court of BC COVID-19 FAQs. See the Provincial Court of BC Guide to Remote Proceedings for more information about court proceedings during the pandemic.

See Legal Aid BC’s remote proceeding tips to help you as you prepare to attend a remote court proceeding.
