Expansion of the Civil Claims Online Service - Our Reference #: A-2020-83

24 Mar 2020 11:54 AM | York Region Law Association (Administrator)

Please find attached a Notice to the Legal Profession regarding the expansion of the Civil Claims Online service on March 23, 2020.

The online service expansion will assist lawyers and litigants with accessing justice services during these unprecedented times when court counter services are required to be reduced to protect the health and safety of the public and staff. While filings will be accepted through the online system, until normal operations resume, only those matters that are scheduled by the judiciary for an urgent hearing will proceed. Court services will be available for urgent hearings and service will be limited for non-urgent matters.

As set out in the Notice, the Civil Claims Online service should not be used to file documents in a proceeding that has been declared by the judiciary to require an urgent hearing pursuant to the Superior Court of Justice's Notice to the Profession, the Media and the Public dated March 15, 2020 or pursuant to the Commercial List Users Committee Notice dated March 16, 2020.
