Submission to Supreme Court of BC: Virtual Chambers for Short Matters

  • November 02, 2022

Following the return of in-person Chambers, CBABC asks the Supreme Court of British Columbia to move to virtual Chambers hearings for short matters in civil and family law proceedings with the ability to obtain in-person appearances where circumstances warrant.  

CBABC is of the view that a presumptively virtual approach to short, routine matters would: 

  • Enhance access to justice and transparency; 
  • Modernize the Courts; and 
  • Adhere to invested resources and encourage further investment in the legal sector. 

CBABC has also responded to the rationale provided for the return to presumptive in-person Chambers.
