Starting January 27, 2021, new amendments to the Supreme Court of Canada rules will apply to all cases, including filings in any ongoing cases. These changes are meant to help simplify the leave process. Applications will now consist of the notice of application, lower court decisions and memorandum of argument only. It will also allow for easier electronic filing, with reduced print copies needed.
The SCC website has provided an online guide to help explain these changes. The guidelines and forms have also been updated with these new procedures.
