Judgments & Decisions



B.C. Provincial Court judgments are located on CanLII (Canadian Legal Information Institute), a national legal information databank.


Provincial Court judges often give oral (spoken) reasons at the end of a trial. If a written record of spoken reasons is required, a transcript of what the judge said can be obtained. A few of the decisions in CanLII are transcripts of spoken judgments. In cases where judges need more time to consider or explain a decision clearly, they will "reserve" judgment and draft written reasons. Most of the judgments published in law reports and on CanLII are written judgments.

To obtain a transcript of a spoken decision see the B.C. Ministry of Justice, Court Services website - Obtaining transcripts of Provincial Court proceedings
