New Civil Rules – Frequently Asked Questions

April 19, 2010

Dear Valued Customers,


We would like to thank those of you that attended Dye & Durham’s presentation on the practices and procedures pertaining to the NEW Supreme Court Civil Rules effective July 1st, 2010.  As promised, we have taken your questions and put them forward to our various sources and attached is the first of two FAQ sheets regarding the rule changes. 


We would also like to take this opportunity to thank those individuals at the Vancouver Supreme Court Registry and Court Services Branch that took the time to review and address the questions we put forward.  It is important to note that while there are only a few months until the new rules are in effect, many questions could not be answered at this time as we understand that there are ongoing reviews and revisions to the rules.  In addition, while some answers were provided directly from the rules, others are an interpretation of the rules and should not be taken as authoritative or as legal advice.


As mentioned in our sessions, we can expect to see one or more practice directives pertaining to the new rules, which Dye & Durham will distribute via this medium as they are made available.To access the FAQ list please click on the following link:
