  • August 19, 2020 - UPDATED NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC - SERVICE AND FILING DEADLINES FURTHER SUSPENDED FROM 19 AUGUST TO 14 SEPTEMBER 2020. This updated Notice to the Public replaces the Notice to the Public issued by the Chief Justice of British Columbia on 4 August 2020. The suspension of service and filing deadlines for existing appeals and chambers applications started on 18 March 2020 and is being extended a final time from 19 August 2020 to 14 September 2020. The suspension of service and filing deadlines will not be further extended. This means that the required time periods to file or serve materials for existing appeals will not start to run again until 14 September 2020. Beginning 14 September you will have the same amount of time to file and serve materials as you would have been entitled to on 18 March 2020.

    Note that the suspension of time periods to commence civil or family proceedings started on 26 March 2020 pursuant to Ministerial Order No. M098 and will remain in effect until 45 days after the state of emergency declared under s. 9(1) of the Emergency Program Act on 18 March 2020 expires or is cancelled. For further details review Order in Council 0453 and the Covid-19 Related Measures Act, s. SBC 2020, c.8.
