Notice to the Profession & Public - Calgary Commercial Duty List Matters Being Heard on the Edmonton Commercial Duty List

Jul 23, 2018

Due to increasing lead times in Calgary to have commercial matters heard on the Calgary Commercial Duty List, on a pilot project basis, matters scheduled on the Calgary Commercial Duty List may be heard by Justices on the Edmonton Commercial List. For such matters to be heard on the Edmonton Commercial Duty List, the following conditions must be met:

  1. There is time available on the Edmonton Commercial Duty List;
  2. The matter is urgent;
  3. The matter would not require the Justice hearing the matter in Edmonton to case manage the action; and
  4. The Co-Chairs of the Commercial Practice Steering Committee both agree that the matter should be heard on the Edmonton Commercial Duty List.

It is expected that counsel and parties would attend the Application in person in Edmonton unless leave to otherwise appear is obtained prior to the hearing of the Application.
This pilot project will be in place from September 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019 and will be evaluated at that time.
