Notice to the Profession & Public - Holiday Closures December 2015

Nov 16, 2015

As a result of the 2014 Collective Agreement between the Province of Alberta and the Alberta Union of Public Employees, provincial government services will be restricted on December 29, 30 and 31, 2015. Because of reduced staffing levels and the closure of court facilities during this period, the Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta will hear emergency applications only, at the Calgary Courts Centre. All other Court of Queen'.s Bench of Alberta locations will be closed on December 29, 30 and 31.

Anyone outside of Calgary with an emergency application during this period is asked to contact the Court of Queen's Bench in Calgary, at 403-297-6267.

Should an emergency matter need to be heard, a clerk will be on stand-by in each Court of
Queen's Bench location. If required, the clerk at the Calgary Courts Centre will contact the
stand-by clerk at the regional location or in Edmonton, who will arrange to open the courthouse, file the necessary documents and facilitate the hearing in Calgary via telephone or video conference.
