Update on Provincial Court COVID Restrictions

Notice: Further Resumptions and Some Continued Restrictions

In line with public health directives, the Provincial court continues re-opening with incremental steps. This follows protocols already in place pursuant to previous Notices of June 23 and July 20, 2021.

The Provincial Court of Manitoba remains closed to members of the general public. The Court will continue to hear all trials, preliminary inquiries and Inquests in the court centres. Beginning August 30, 2021, the presumption that counsel and accused persons will appear remotely will no longer apply to adult matters proceeding to disposition and all matters under the Youth Criminal Justice Act. Child Protection dockets will be held in the community or court centre where they are ordinarily heard.

Additional protocols and information are available in the notice.
