CORONAVIRUS CHANGES TO COURT AND COMMISSION PROCEDURES
Courts and commissions are changing their procedures to deal with the coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions. This means that some of the procedural information in our resources may not be current.
For example, the way that you lodge a claim form to start a claim, or the way that conciliations and hearings are conducted may have changed.
