Court of King’s Bench
An Act Respecting the Title of “Associate Judge” received royal assent on May 30, 2023. The Bill comes into force on September 27, 2023. The Bill amends The Court of King’s Bench Act to change the designation of judicial officers appointed under Division 2 of Part IV of the Act from “master” to “associate judge”.
In view of the amendments, necessary changes are being made to the Court of King’s Bench Rules, as well as to the website, court forms, and courthouse signage.
With continued difficulties finding adequate facilities for court in the community, court for Oxford House will be held in Thompson.

Matters from the Provincial Court counter(PCC) will continue to be heard on any 306 2:00PM docket Monday through Friday.
