Notice Regarding September 30, 2022 – Criminal Matters
“September 30, 2022 is the second National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a day to reflect on the ongoing impact of the residential school system in Canada and to honour survivors, their families, and communities. This is an important opportunity to acknowledge these experiences as part of the reconciliation process.
At the Ontario Court of Justice, only Weekend and Statutory Holiday (bail courts) will operate on Friday, September 30, 2022. See the public statement by Ontario’s three Chief Justices here.
For further information about criminal matters scheduled for September 30, 2022, please see the Ontario Court of Justice’s Notice Regarding September 30, 2022 – Criminal Matters.”
