Court offices will be closed on Monday, October 2, 2023 in honour of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Online filing services will remain available 24/7, including on October 2, 2023. However, any documents submitted through the online portals on that day will be marked as filed/issued on the next business day, October 3, 2023.

For Provincial Offences Act (POA) matters, the Chief Justice of the Ontario Court of Justice has issued an order extending various filing deadlines that fall on October 2, 2023 to October 3, 2023. In Ontario, POA court offices are administered by municipalities. Some of these court offices may be open on October 2, 2023. Contact your local POA office for further information.

Where possible, consider online filing of your civil claims, small claims or family law matters.
