Court File No. (if known)

NOTE:
  • 1 This form must be completed in full in all cases, and signed by the assigned Crown counsel, or a Crown counsel authorized to bind the Crown, and by counsel of record for each accused person, before the first judicial pre-trial conference, unless otherwise ordered, or unless the accused has advised that he or she will definitely be pleading guilty and the only issue to be addressed at the judicial pre-trial conference is sentence.

  • 2 Crown and Defence counsel are encouraged to discuss the issues to be addressed at the pre-hearing conference in advance of the conference and to jointly file this form.

  • 3 Counsel must provide their position on each issue, and not indicate they “will advise”, or “not as yet”, etc.

  • 4 The Crown must complete this form and fax, email or deliver it to the Defence counsel of record, or where there is no counsel of record, to the accused, not later than 10 days before the date scheduled for the pre-hearing conference, case supervision conference or case management conference.

    When the Crown and the Defence will be filing separate pre-trial conference reports, the Crown must fax or deliver to the Superior Court trial office a hard copy of the Crown’s report 10 days before the date scheduled for the pre-trial conference, case supervision conference or case management conference; the Defence must fax or deliver to the Superior Court trial office a hard copy of the Defence report five days before the date scheduled for the pre-trial conference, case supervision conference or case management conference.

    When the Crown and Defence will jointly file a pre-trial conference report, the report must be faxed or delivered in hard copy to the Superior Court trial office five days before the date scheduled for the pre-trial conference, case supervision conference or case management conference.

  • 5 If any party changes the position taken on this form, which will be provided to the trial judge, they must provide written notice to the other party and the Superior Court Trial Office of the change in position, in addition to any notice required by the Rules of Court. If counsel have not indicated an application will be brought, the presumption is that it will not be heard. The failure to notify the other side and the Trial Office of any application not indicated on this form will be a factor considered by the trial judge in determining whether the new position has prejudiced the other party, and whether any application may proceed.

  • 6 The Crown’s copy of the report must be accompanied by a brief synopsis of the allegations, including how the Crown proposes to prove the allegations.

  • 7 Section references in the Form refer to the Criminal Code, unless otherwise indicated.
