Supreme Court civil hearing day fees resume

Effective August 1, 2016, the Court Services Branch will resume invoicing and collecting hearing day fees, as outlined in the Supreme Court Civil Rules Appendix C, Schedule 1, Item 9 and Item 10. Any Supreme Court civil trial or hearing set after August 1, 2016 will be invoiced, and unless ordered otherwise, payment will be due forthwith from the party who filed the notice of trial or filed the documents to set the hearings.

Court Services Branch is considering the impact of the Supreme Court of Canada decision on the payment of hearing day fees for Supreme Court family matters and in the interim will not be charging hearing day fees for those cases. Court Services is also initiating a comprehensive review of all court fees.
