Request to Amend Timetable Order


This note amends Practice Note No. 14, which was issued on September 23, 2005.

Orders setting dates for the completion of steps in an appeal are generally issued from dates submitted by the parties. Parties should carefully consider the dates they submit to the Court for litigation steps. The Court expects that parties will meet self-imposed ordered deadlines.

Requests for extensions are not automatic. These may be granted or denied at the Court's discretion.

A party requesting an extension of time before the expiry of the required performance date may apply to the Court using the attached form (Request to Amend Timetable Order). The request must be filed with the Court before the expiry of the performance date. As well, consent of the responding party shall be executed before the expiry of the performance date.

A party applying for an extension of time filed after the expiry of the performance date must do so by means of a Motion with Affidavit. The Court will grant such Motion only in exceptional circumstances which must be set out in the A ffidavit.

This note takes effect on November 1, 2009.

Dated this 22nd day of October 2009.

Gerald J. Rip
Chief Justice
