Judicial Council to adopt online system for appointment applications

Posted to: 

On September 5, 2017, the Judicial Council of BC will adopt an online application process for all those seeking an appointment to the Provincial Court, including appointment as a Judge, Judicial Justice, or Justice of the Peace.

Paper applications will not be accepted after this date. Therefore, candidates for any of these appointments should complete and submit a paper application before Labour Day, or wait until September 5 to begin the process online.

The Court and the Judicial Council of BC continue to use technology to create efficiencies and more effective use of internal resources. The BC Provincial Court is one of a handful of courts in the world pioneering online applications.

Starting September 5, all online application forms will be available on the Provincial Court website: www.provincialcourt.bc.ca. Once applicants create a user account, they will be able to save their work, log out, and log back in to resume filling out their application. With the exception of a medical release form, all supplementary forms will also be completed online.
