Notice to the Profession & Public - Criminal Code S.525 Detention Review Process - New Forms CC4 and CC5

Sep 27, 2019

In order to better align the Court’s detention review process under s.525 of the Criminal Code with the decision of the Supreme Court of Canada in R v Myers, 2019 SCC 18, the Court of Queen’s Bench has amended its Criminal Forms CC4 and CC5. These forms are located on the Court’s website at: https://albertacourts.ca/qb/areas-of-law/criminal/forms. These forms may be subject to further technical updates, and the Court will post updated versions of Forms CC4 and CC5 in the French language, to the same location, shortly.

A description of the s.525 Detention Review Process, and a flowchart illustrating that Process, are available on the Areas of Law - Criminal page of the Court’s website, at: https://albertacourts.ca/qb/areas-of-law/criminal/forms.
