Amended June 4th – Ordering Transcripts for matters to be heard in the Court of Appeal

This notice is intended to streamline the process for ordering transcripts when appealing from a lower court to the Court of
Appeal.

The Court of Appeal requires one paper copy and one electronic copy of any transcript it is to consider on hearing an appeal, unless a judge orders otherwise. Pursuant to both rule 16(1) of the Court of Appeal Rules (Civil) and rule 11(1)(a) of the Manitoba Criminal Appeal Rules, an appellant is required to provide confirmation that the necessary transcripts have been ordered at the time the initiating document is filed.

Effective immediately, this confirmation shall be in the form of a completed court transcript order request, which is to accompany
the notice of appeal or initiating notice of motion at the time of filing.
