Provincial Court extends Fax Filing Pilot Project

The Chief Judge of the Provincial Court has issued an amended practice direction with regard to the fax filing pilot project that is underway in Provincial Court registries. The review period for the project has been extended to July 1, 2010.

On February 1, 2003 the Fax Filing Pilot Project was implemented in 14 court registries throughout the province. The project, an initiative of the Court services Branch and the Ministry of the Attorney General, in consultation with the Provincial Court and Supreme Courts, pilots an alternative to "in-person" filing or filing by mail of certain civil documents.
