Designation of His Majesty the King in cases where the Crown is a party

print friendly

(September 21, 2022)

New Filings: 

In matters where the Crown is a party, parties are expected to designate His Majesty the King rather than Her Majesty the Queen in any new filing in an ongoing or new proceeding.

Ongoing matters:

For ongoing proceedings, no party to any proceeding in the Ontario Court of Justice is required to bring a motion to change previously filed materials. Further, parties will not be required to file amended documents. Matters commenced in the name of Her Majesty the Queen will continue in the name of His Majesty the King.
