Ontario Courts proceed virtually until February 28

The Ontario Superior Court of Justice released an updated Notice to Profession and Public Regarding Court Proceedings, which is in effect until February 28, 2022.




The Court recommends that participants use virtual methods of meeting. In particular, Civil and Family matters will proceed virtually, with some urgent situations proceeding in a hybrid hearing.



"Access to participate in a virtual hearing:

Where a litigant does not have access to the necessary technology to participate in a virtual hearing, and does not have a lawyer who is able to provide supports or resources, they should reach out to their local court office immediately so that arrangements can be made to facilitate their participation in the hearing."
