British Columbia Court of Appeal
Practice Note (Civil & Criminal)
Title: Preferred Filing Registry
Issued: 19 September 2011
Cite as: Preferred Filing Registry (Civil & Criminal Practice Note, 19 September 2011)
The B.C. Court of Appeal sits regularly in Vancouver, monthly in Victoria, and occasionally in Kamloops, Kelowna and Prince George.
Vancouver is the central registry for the Court of Appeal. The scheduling and review of material takes place in Vancouver and all of the files and books are located in Vancouver.
For the hearing of appeals and chambers matters, the material is sent from Vancouver to the registry where the matter will be heard. For hearings and chambers applications set to be heard in Vancouver, and for related written submissions, the Court requires that all relevant materials be filed in Vancouver, if possible. This will avoid delays in the materials being transferred from outside registries to the Vancouver Registry.
The cooperation of counsel in this regard is appreciated.
