The newly updated Provincial Court of BC Notice No. 19 to the public, effective June 12, 2020, explains what will be happening to Provincial Court matters for the coming months.
Many trials and appearances before or on July 3, 2020, have been rescheduled. Trials scheduled after July 3, 2020, will proceed on their scheduled date. Counsel and self-represented litigants should attend court on the date scheduled at 9:00 AM to advise if they are ready to proceed that day. You will be notified by the court if there are any changes. Other non-trial appearances scheduled for after July 3, 2020, will proceed on the date scheduled, either in court or by phone.
If you have an upcoming provincial matter, it is important that you check Notice No. 19 to confirm your scheduled date and whether it will be in court or via phone.
