New Case Conference Form in Toronto

The Notice to the Profession for Toronto was amended effective November 19, 2021 to provide for a new Case Conference Request form. This form replaces the Chambers Appointment Hearing Request form.

There is also a new email address to submit Case Conference Request forms:

Rule 50.13 addresses case conferences. Under rule 50.13(5), at a case conference, the judge or associate judge may deal with the following:

(a)  identify the issues and note those that are contested and those that are not;

(b)  explore methods to resolve the contested issues;

(c)  if possible, secure the parties’ agreement on a specific schedule of events in the proceeding;

(d)  establish a timetable for the proceeding; and

(e)  review and, if necessary, amend an existing timetable.
