Notice to the Profession & Public - e-Notice of Restricted Access Applications

May 9, 2018

In order to increase compliance with the requirements of the Criminal Procedure Rules (Division 7, r 18) and the Alberta Rules of Court (Part 6, Division 4, r 6.32) with respect to notice to media of applications for orders restricting public access or publication, the Court has introduced an electronic procedure for the provision of such notice.

The procedure requires that counsel and individuals wishing to apply for a restricted access order must, in addition to filing an application with the Court, submit the online “Notice to Media of Application to Restrict Access” and present a print copy to the clerk when filing their notice of application as proof that they have given the required media notice. Members of the media and public who apply and are accepted for the subscription service will receive notices of all such applications by email.

The e-Notice of Restricted Access Applications forms are on the Court website at: https://albertacourts.ca/qb/resources/media/enotice-of-restricted-access-applications.
