Public Access

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ontario Court of Justice introduced new measures to ensure that members of the public continued to have appropriate access to court proceedings, court records and audio recordings of court proceedings.

Since the pandemic, proceedings that involve remote appearances (video conferences and telephone) have increased. The Ontario Court of Justice recognizes that it is important to uphold the open court principle by ensuring that members of the public can appropriately access court proceedings, court records and digital audio recordings.
