Notice to the Profession

June 15, 2016

Effective September 1, 2016, all applications in criminal appeals that must be heard by a three-judge panel of the Court will be scheduled and heard along with sentence appeals, on the days regularly scheduled for sentence appeals.

Applications in civil appeals that must be heard by a three-judge panel will continue to be heard on the regularly scheduled panel application days.

This is a pilot project, which will be reviewed after six months. Litigants who have any questions about the procedure may contact the Case Management Officers in Edmonton (bobbi.mcdevitt@albertacourts.ca) or Calgary (jo-anna.cowen@albertacourts.ca).
