Appendix B: Naming Conventions for Electronic Materials

  1. Effective September 13, 2022, the file names for all materials that are served and filed electronically must start with one of the character codes set out in paragraph 3 of this Appendix (e.g., FAP or ABCO), followed by the Court of Appeal file number (e.g., COA-22-CV-####, COA-22-CR-####, COA-22-OM-####, C##### or M#####), and end with the relevant file extension (e.g., docx, PDF). If there is no character code for a particular file, a party may create a code or use a longer descriptive name that readily identifies the type of file. For sealed materials, the code “SLD” should be added to the naming convention following the character code. For example:

FAP.COA-22-CR-2321.PDF

TRN.COA-22-OM-0873.PDF

MPF.M55556.docx

FRE.SLD.C55572.docx

Appellant’s Reply Factum to Interveners.C55597.PDF

  1. Parties serving and filing materials electronically between September 13, 2022 and September 27, 2022 are encouraged to comply with the naming convention set out in paragraph 1. The court will, however, accept materials using the former naming conventions.
  2. Parties must use the following character codes when naming electronic documents. If there is no character code for a particular file, a party may create a code or use a longer descriptive name that readily identifies the type of file.
