New Practice Advisories, effective April 3, 2018, set out the requirements for the Toronto Region Long Motions Pilot and the Welland Long Motions Pilot.
The Practice Advisory Concerning Long Motions in the City of Welland applies to all civil, family and stand-alone pre-trial criminal long motions (e.g. 11b applications) that are scheduled for one or more hours. Parties will be required to submit motions materials in paper, as required by the rules of court, and electronically on a USB stick. The pilot excludes child protection cases, criminal third party records applications and criminal long motions heard during trial.
