A Message from the Chief Justice of Canada

Dear Canadians,

At the Canadian Judicial Council, we understand that the rapid developments surrounding COVID-19 are deeply concerning. Canada’s Chief Justices are actively working to limit the spread of the virus at their respective courts in order to protect all citizens. Canadians can be assured that the justice system continues to function on their behalf and the rule of law prevails. That said, all courts are taking measures to adapt as required. Canadians who are engaged in judicial events, are encouraged to consult their respective court website before attending any court matter. 

The Right Honourable Richard Wagner, C.P.
