Criminal Practice Direction - CPD-4 Interim Procedure for Detention Reviews Under s. 525 of the Criminal Code

Associate Chief Justice Holmes has issued CPD-4, which sets out a general interim procedure for detention reviews under s. 525 of the Criminal Code following the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in R. v. Myers, 2019 SCC 18.  It is expected that this interim practice direction will be updated and replaced as experience develops with s. 525 applications and hearings.

CPD-4 is posted on the Supreme Court website under Practice Directions - Criminal and can be found here.
