How do I order a transcript?
Last revised November 29, 2023

In British Columbia courts, audio recordings are made of all court proceedings.  Access to written transcripts by the public is determined by policies set by the Court of Appeal, BC Supreme Court and BC Provincial Court. 

Publicly accessible transcripts must be ordered directly from the transcription companies listed in the provincial website linked below.


You will need to have the following information when ordering the transcript:

  • Whether the hearing was in the Provincial or Supreme Court
  • The date of the hearing
  • The court file number


The Supreme Court Policy on Access to the Court Record  Parts 6 & 7 outlines the rights and methods of access available in BC.
