Supreme Court of BC: COVID-19 No. 42

From October 14, 2020:

Effective October 14, 2020, the Supreme Court will begin a gradual roll-out to hear chambers applications using Microsoft Teams (“Teams”). Applications in Masters chambers of 2 hours or less scheduled for hearing in Vancouver will be heard by Teams starting on October 26, 2020. For every Teams hearing, a dial-in conferencing number will also be provided so that parties can participate by phone if they are unable to do so by video or if their video connection fails during the hearing.

Until further notice, all applications other than Masters chambers of 2 hours or less in Vancouver will proceed by telephone. Hearing of lengthy chambers applications and applications in Judges chambers and in locations other than Vancouver by Teams will be announced at a later date. Parties are encouraged to check the Court’s website regularly for more information.
