Provincial Court Reviewing Rules: Lawyers' Feedback Sought

The Provincial Court has issued a Notice of Consultation (PDF) announcing that a committee has been struck to review the Provincial Court (Family) Rules to ensure the rules will work with any new provincial family law legislation which may be passed, such as that proposed by last summer's white paper (PDF).

In light of the opportunity offered by this review, the notice invites lawyers to provide their comments on how the current Provincial Court (Family) Rules could be improved generally. Comments are to be provided by email to Ms Erin Shaw at erinshaw@shaw.ca and must be received by 9 October 2011.
