As a result of the province-wide lockdown, the Ontario Superior Court of Justice issued an updated Notice to the Profession and Public last week.
The notice states that, effective December 29, 2020, all non-jury matters should proceed virtually unless in-person attendance is absolutely necessary. This will remain in effect until the lockdowns are lifted or until further notice of the Court.
All courtrooms will be subject to a 10 person capacity limit. There will be no new jury selection during the lockdown period.
