After September 5, 2017 only online applications will be accepted by the Provincial Courts in B.C. Paper applications will no longer be accepted.
This may not seem to be a significant innovation but the British Columbia Provincial Court is one of only a handful of courts in the world who are pioneering this system.
Applications will be available on the B.C. Provincial Court website and applicants will be required to create a new user account.
It is hoped that this will help to streamline the application process and to enable the court registry to process more applications and get them before the courts in a timelier manner.
