The B.C. provincial court announced that it has updated its procedures for traffic, ticket or bylaw matters as the province begins to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the court’s June 9 notice, such matters, with hearings previously scheduled for March 18 and thereafter, are adjourned for rescheduling without the disputant having to attend court. Parties will be sent a new notice of hearing that will include the date, time and location of the hearing.

The court is in the process of developing these new dates, times and locations and will provide further information as soon as possible. Disputants have the options of filing written reasons, including a request for a fine reduction and/or time to pay or paying the fine(s) on the ticket.

The timeline to pay fines related to a provincial court traffic, ticket or bylaw case is extended to June 30. More information can be found here.
