From the Court of Appeal for BC
Effective January 4, 2022, the Chief Justice of British Columbia directed that all appeal and chambers proceedings take place remotely, unless otherwise directed. The Notice Regarding Court of Appeal Procedures and Access to Court Proceedings during the COVID-19 Pandemic and the Notice to the Public Regarding Appearing by Video have been updated to incorporate this direction. Counsel and litigants must complete and submit the updated Court Proceedings Form at least ten (10) business days before the appeal hearing. For chambers hearings the Court Proceedings Form must be submitted together with the notice of motion, or, in the case of a responding party, together with any response to the application, at least two (2) business days before the chambers proceeding takes place.
