The Province will move to  enter Phase 3 of its reopening plan beginning Thursday, April  7, 2022. This Plan provides  that certain COVID-19 restrictions will be removed including gathering and capacity limits, and physical distancing requirements. Masking mandates will continue in place until at least April 28, 2022.

However, the Courts will continue to keep the restrictions in place for the time being, and until a further announcement is made. Gathering and capacity limits will continue to be adhered to as well as physical distancing and masking requirements.

All Courts have resumed hearing most matters in-person. However, a request for a virtual hearing can be made. It will be in the discretion of each Court whether to hold a virtual hearing. Inquiries may be directed to:

Access to the Registry will continue to be restricted. The Drop Box will continue to be available for document delivery  and e-filing will  be maintained.
