Supreme Court

If you estimate your matter will take two hours or less, you can apply for a chambers hearing by Microsoft Teams. See Chambers applications during COVID-19 for instructions on how to make a new application or response, or reset an adjourned application.

Visit the BC Supreme Court website for the most up-to-date information.

Provincial Court

Provincial Court registries are now accepting ALL filings at the applicable court registry either in-person or remotely (by mail, email, fax to fax filing registries under GEN 01 Practice Direction, or using Court Services Online where available). To protect the health and safety of all court users and help contain the spread of COVID-19 while maintaining access to the Court, parties are encouraged to use remote filing options wherever possible. See Notice NP19 for more information.
