Courthouse

The Ontario Court of Justice Provincial Offences Court located at 5 Ray Lawson Boulevard will reopen on July 6.

Those attending the courthouse must follow all posted signage and directions. There will be a designated one-way entry door, where visitors will be greeted by a security guard. Visitors are asked to review the posted COVID-19 self-screening questions prior to entry. Hand sanitizer will be provided upon entry. Visitors can then visit the Information Counter for a queue ticket.

If the queue is at capacity, visitors will be prompted to provide their cell phone number to receive a queue number via text message. They will be asked to wait outside until they receive a text message advising them to enter the building. Colour coded floor markings will guide visitors to different service areas in the building.

Please be advised that all in-person Provincial Offences Act matters will be adjourned until September 11, 2020. A copy of the notice is available on the Ontario Court of Justice’s website.
