REMINDER - Pilot project - Applications made to an appellate judge sitting alone: possibility for the respondent to submit a plan of argument not exceeding 2 pages

February 01, 2019


In civil matters, in order to improve the efficiency of hearings held before an appellate judge sitting alone, a new method of operation was implemented on December 1st, 2018. For an application presented to an appellate judge, the applicant is now strongly encouraged to file the motion at least five (5) days before the date of its presentation (instead of the two (2) days delay specified in article 377 of the Code of Civil Procedure).

When such a motion is filed five (5) days before the date of its presentation, the responding party may, if it so wishes, submit to the Court’s office and notify to the other parties, at least two (2) days before the date of presentation, a plan of argument not exceeding two (2) pages, summarizing its position and observations. If submitted, the document must comply with articles 21 to 24 of the Civil Practice Regulation (Court of Appeal) (CQLR, c. C-25.01, r. 10).
