New Court Notices

August 19, 2021 – Noting of Default where service is by registered or certified mail under Queen’s Bench Rule 16.03(4)(A)

Due to changes with Canada Post no longer obtaining signatures on registered mail “the Registrar will accept requisitions to note default on a statement of claim where the other requirements to note default are met but the statement of claim was served outside of six months after it was issued and the plaintiff files satisfactory affidavit evidence.”

Notice – Adjustment to Current Scheduling Protocols September 7, 2021 until further notice (August 20, 2021)

In an effort to further the “cautious approach in the transition to further normalization of Court of Queen’s Bench hearings … the court will be further enhancing its in-person judicial service commencing with the fall term on Tuesday, September 7, 2021, until further notice.”

A list of full protocols is provided in the notice.
