Answer

If you’re supposed to go to the Ontario Court of Justice for a criminal trial or preliminary inquiry between March 20 and July 3, don’t go to the court. These hearings have been suspended.

If your trial or preliminary inquiry has already started, the judge may order that it continues.

If you’re out of custody, you can check this list of adjournment dates. Your trial or preliminary inquiry will be rescheduled when you come to court on your new date.

If you’re in custody, your trial or preliminary inquiry will be adjourned to a date chosen by the presiding judge.

If you need legal advice, speak to your lawyer or call Legal Aid Ontario. You can also contact the court for more information.
