New rules for the Court of Appeal were enacted on March 12, 2014.
When the Alberta Rules of Court were replaced in November, 2010, they did not contain rules for appeals to the Court of Appeal of Alberta. While we waited for these new appellate rules, the “old (1968) rules” continued to apply to appeals to the Court of Appeal. With the enactment of the new Court of Appeal rules, all of the 2010 Rules of Court will now apply to appeals in the Court of Appeal.
The new Court of Appeal rules will come into effect September 1, 2014. Amendments to the Court of Appeal Consolidated Practice Directions will also be made.
The new rules can be found on the Alberta Queen’s Printer website at www.qp.alberta.ca/1125.cfm.
