As many of you are aware, provincial courts have not been hearing peace bond applications during the pandemic because of reduced court operations.
This has now changed: as of July 19th, anyone wishing to apply for a peace bond can do so remotely. Applications can be completed and submitted online, and any necessary meetings with a Justice of the Peace can happen remotely. The peace bond hearing will be held in accordance with processes at each provincial court.
Those who prefer to make their application in-person will be accommodated to do so.
