    Message # 13287149

    On November 1, 2023, Chief Justice Sharon Nicklas issued a Province-wide Jordan­-Compliant Trial Scheduling Practice Direction (which is attached). The objective of this initiative is to ensure the Ontario Court of Justice offers a criminal trial date that complies with R. v. Jordan and applies to accused persons who are represented by counsel and self-represented accused.

    This Notice to the Profession provides details regarding the implementation of the directive in the Ontario Court of Justice in Hamilton. Effective January 2, 2024, Courtroom 302 on Wednesday mornings (and part of the afternoon if available) will be used for the purposes set out in this notice. Youth Court will be moved to Courtroom 306 on Wednesday mornings. Once Youth matters are completed on Wednesdays, Courtroom 306 will continue as the regular Guilty Plea Court.
