Civil Practice Court was introduced to replace Motions Scheduling Court in Toronto. It’s main function is to institute a gatekeeping Judge for long and/or complex motions and applications before a Judge, such as motions for summary judgment.
Simple motions up to 2 hours long can be scheduled by email. Longer and more complex motions before a Judge require an attendance at Civil Practice Court to get a date and possibly set a timetable.
For up to date information on Civil Practice Court, please consult the practice directions (starting with any covid-19 practice direction).
