What is a Halliday Order?
Last revised August 08, 2019

Halliday v. McCulloch, (1986) 1 B.C.L.R. (2d) 194, 14 C.P.C. (2d) 70 (C.A.), established a form of Order for the production of potentially privileged documents in applications for medical records.  Known as a Halliday Order, this Order allows the party claiming privilege to exclude from production privileged or irrelevant documents.

For an example of a Halliday Order, see Form 14F27 in British Columbia Court Forms, 2nd ed., chapter 14: Discovery.
