Jun 4, 2020

The Court of Queen’s Bench will resume Criminal Appearance Court (“CAC”) province wide commencing June 5, 2020 via Webex with regular CAC dates listed in the Court Calendar and those added in the Master Orders. Booking priority will be given on CAC lists in June to September 4, 2020 to in-custody matters, trials that were Jordan-threatened prior to the pandemic and trial adjournments from March 16 to June 26, 2020. During these CAC dates, matters meeting one of these criteria will be scheduled for hearings. For criminal trial bookings in June, July and August 2020, please refer to the announcement from May 22, 2020 available here and complete the Criminal Trial Triage Form.

Any new, non-urgent matters should be set for CAC on or after September 7, 2020 unless there are slots available. Please note capped dates below.

No Brought Forward Requests will be permitted for June, July or August. If you require an urgent appearance, please complete the Criminal Trial Triage Form.
