Ontario Superior Court of Justice Trials

Civil Practice Court

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).
