July 2012 – Applications for Leave to Appeal - Filing of Electronic Documents
Please take note that for every application for leave to appeal filed on or after August 1, 2012, counsel will be required to file an electronic version of the memorandum of argument on the application for leave, the response and the reply. Until further notice, this requirement will not apply to parties who are not represented by counsel.
The electronic document must be filed in PDF format on a CD-ROM, or as an attachment to an e-mail sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than five (5) working days after the filing of the printed version prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Rules of the Supreme Court of Canada and the Guidelines for Preparing Documents to be Filed with the Supreme Court of Canada (Print and Electronic). The deadlines for service and filing of printed documents remain the same. Service of the electronic version is not required.
The electronic version of a document must be a true representation of the printed version. The original printed version is considered the official version.
These electronic versions of memorandums of argument will assist the Court in its deliberations. They will not be posted on the Court’s Web site. The Court appreciates your co-operation.
For further information, or if you have any questions, please contact Julie Laverty, Manager, Registry Branch, at 613-996-7810.
