Criminal Appearance Court (CAC) Adjournment Form

Mar 17, 2021
A Criminal Appearance Court (CAC) Adjournment Form is now available for Counsel and Court use here: https://www.albertacourts.ca/qb/areas-of-law/criminal/forms. Counsel may seek to use this form where a CAC adjournment is being sought in Edmonton or Calgary; a Designation of Counsel has been filed; and Counsel agree to waive delay arising from the adjournment to the next CAC date. Other requirements are contained on the Form, which aims to bring greater efficiency to CAC. Unless the presiding judge deems otherwise, if all requirements of the Form have been met, and the Form is appropriately submitted for processing 3 clear business days in advance of the scheduled CAC appearance, the CAC adjournment will be processed without the requirement for Counsel to make an appearance in CAC
